Dear UNT faculty and staff,

As we wrap up another successful year, I want to thank you for the many ways in which you go the extra mile to serve our students and strengthen UNT. The progress we've made in recent years would not be possible without your commitment to our mission.

In appreciation for your contributions, UNT will close at noon Friday, Dec. 21 to begin the winter break. Instructions regarding how to record the closure hours are detailed online by Payroll Time & Labor.

You - our faculty and staff members - make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students. You impart knowledge, guidance and motivation that helps them reach their dreams. Thank you for helping our students and our university soar higher. I can't wait to see what we'll accomplish in 2019.

UNT Proud,

Neal Smatresk
