Welcome to the 2019-20 academic year – A Message from the President

Aug. 27, 2019

Dear UNT community,

A new year of opportunity has arrived, and we’re so glad to have you as a member of our UNT family. We’re a caring, creative university focused on helping each student unlock their potential and achieve their dreams. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. With a UNT education, you’ll be prepared to rise to the challenges of a modern workforce and fuel the nation’s creative economy. At UNT, nothing is out of reach, as you’ll see in our new video.

Designated a Tier One research university, we’re on the rise with 77 academic programs ranked among the nation’s top 100. Last year, we set records in research expenditures, philanthropic gifts and student enrollment. We anticipate this year will again be exceptional.

We want you to be a part of the excitement by participating in the events happening on campus this fall. You can find a full list of events at calendar.unt.edu, including these highlights:

To all our new students, welcome to the UNT family. We’re so glad you’re here, and we can’t wait to see you soar!

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
President
