Our 5 Guiding Principles

Why Now?

UNT Dallas is moving from a 1-year to a 5-year long-range strategic plan. This roadmap will continue to advance our mission of empowering students, transforming lives, and strengthening communities. Through broad campus and community engagement, it will reflect the insights and expertise of our students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders and partners. It will align our efforts, inform decision-making, and guide where and how we invest our energy and resources as we transition to the expansion stage of our growth lifecycle.

Full Engagement

Foster an "all in" mind set

The more people we engage in defining the strategic plan,
the more people will be involved in its execution.

Imagine what could be

Challenge conventional thinking and what has been
done in the past. Expect to be surprised and amazed.

Strategic Alignment

Place our students at the center

Ensure decisions align with our mission, vision, values and strategic
themes, all through the lens of diveristy, equity, and inclusion.


Make decisive choices

Prioritize rigorously so we are clear on what we should do,
and even more importantly, what we should not do.


Remain flexible and open-minded

The strategic plan should evolve incrementally
each time new data or insights have been identified.
