Our mission at UNT Dallas inspires and motivates us to succeed in ever increasing ways. The university community can take pride in the long list of accomplishments that have propelled our growing reputation as a place that gets things done collaboratively and closes educational equality gaps.
We also realize that the stakes are high. UNT Dallas has been a relentless advocate for first generation students and their families. We provide a pathway to economic mobility for our students, and our graduates are succeeding as never before. Still, too many promising prospective students remain on the sidelines. The stakes are high because without credentials these students forfeit the lifetime earnings premium that can transform their lives. By creating a welcoming environment, UNT Dallas is committed to the student populations that we serve, and we invite others to participate.
UNT Dallas is now one of the largest employers in southern Dallas County. This is an important economic driver for our neighborhoods. We also are committed to being a place where our employees can grow, thrive and do their best work.
By being a strategically run university that has grown steadily in its enrollment and finances, UNT Dallas has increased its place in the educational ecosystem of North Texas. We are driven by our minds and our hearts, always with our students and prospective students in mind.
