Proactive and Reactive Press Relations

UNT Dallas’ Marketing & Communications Department frequently pitches ideas to the media with the intent of highlighting accomplishments of the institution. All other proactive media contacts, for purposes of gaining media attention for a UNT Dallas program, project, individual or organization, must be coordinated with Marketing & Communications. We also handle all incoming media inquiries regarding UNT Dallas, and its faculty, staff and students in relation to their roles at the institution. The Marketing & Communications director or assistant director is on call at all times to handle media relations related to emergencies and crises involving UNT Dallas.

Please contact Marketing & Communications Department about all media inquiries to ensure consistency of key messages, institutional direction, facts, FERPA compliance and overall follow-up are achieved. We can also help establish key message points and provide coaching related to media interviews. We can, if available, obtain copies of the published piece.

Crisis Communications

In the event of a crisis (natural or man-made disaster), the Director of Marketing & Communications will be contacted immediately and will serve as the institution’s public information officer. Faculty, staff and students should refer any and all media contact on behalf of the institution to the Marketing & Communications department in accordance with the institution’s Emergency Plans.

Media Training

Media training is offered to departments that request a formal presentation or individuals preparing for media interviews. Training includes help with messaging, positioning, appearance and sound bites, as appropriate. Contact the Marketing & Communications Department for more information.

Inclement Weather Notices

Campus facilities will close and operations will be suspended when adverse weather and/or safety hazards exist on the UNT Dallas campus or if travel to the campus is deemed dangerous as the result of conditions such as ice, sleet or snow. The determination of an inclement weather closing is made by the UNT Dallas Police in conjunction with the Chief of Finance and Administration.

In the event of a campus closure, the Marketing & Communications Department will report closure information to all appropriate major media by 7 a.m. Marketing & Communications will update the home page on the UNT Dallas web site, Facebook and Twitter with closing information as soon as it’s available. For more details on inclement weather closures, please refer to the UNT Dallas policy on inclement weather advisories.


All advertisements placed in local, state, and national media representing the UNT Health Science Center and/or its departments, programs and organizations must be approved by the Marketing & Communications Department. The only exception to this is personnel advertisements, which must be approved by Human Resource Services. Promotional advertising must be placed using non-state funds. Advertising on behalf of UNT Dallas and/or its departments, programs and organizations without proper approval is strictly prohibited. The Marketing & Communications Department handles all writing, design and placement of advertisements. Exceptions to this policy can only be authorized by an appropriate representative of the Marketing & Communications Department.

Prior to deciding that advertising is the best route for your communications needs, please contact the Marketing & Communications Department. Marketing staff can help you decide if advertising is the right choice, consult with you on messaging and ensure you follow our brand standards. Marketing staff can also provide valuable assistance in understanding rate schedules and determining ideal “reach and frequency” to meet your needs within your budget.

UNT Dallas coordinates advertising efforts based on strategic timing, messaging, impact and budget. The uncoordinated purchasing of advertising by individual units from the same media outlets results in higher costs for the institution. Collaborating on advertising purchases and negotiating a single purchase on behalf of the institution or with the UNT System lowers our costs. Please contact Marketing & Communications to coordinate your efforts across the institution.

All advertising requires the use of the UNT Dallas wordmark, which must be in a prominent location and with the proper free space around it. All advertising designs must be approved by the Marketing & Communications Department prior to purchase. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by Marketing.

Direct/Bulk Mail

The U.S. Postal Service has many complicated guidelines concerning bulk mailings. If you are considering a bulk or direct mailing, please consult with the Marketing & Communications Department or UNT Print Services to avoid unnecessary postage expenses and penalties.

Style Guide

In matters of editorial style, the prevailing standards of all Marketing & Communications-produced publications are in The Associated Press Stylebook.

Adolescence & Other Temporary Mental Disorders - 1970

Request Now

"With plenty of thought-provoking as well as laugh-out-loud examples, Dr. Pat Friman explains how 'insane' behavior on the part of teens is actually normal considering the different rates of development of parts of the brain. Because the prefrontal cortex which guides reason and logic is still developing in adolescents, it is often overruled by the limbic system, the part of the brain that reacts with emotion. Wild outbursts, risk-taking (drugs, alcohol, and sex), and thoughtless or embarrassing behaviors are therefore regrettable, but not abnormal behaviors in teens. Dr. Friman tells viewers which behaviors to address and how, and which behaviors should simply be ignored as teen 'insanity' that will be outgrown as youth mature. His presentation, full of witty examples and wise advice, speaks directly to parents, caregivers, and educators who are looking to better understand and deal with the craziness of adolescence. Patrick C. Friman, Ph.D., is Director of Clinical Services at Boys Town where he and his staff work with and counsel hundreds of youth and families."--from publisher's website.

In 2000, Dee is one of many residents swept up in an aggressive raid by the police drug task force of their small Texas town. Dee's so innocent that she believes, at first, that she's been arrested because of her parking tickets. Once in the grip of the legal system, Dee faces a difficult choice: free herself by accepting 10 years' probation on a plea bargain, or allow the case to go to court, which could have much costlier consequences. Backed by an ACLU lawyer and a local attorney known for his integrity and connections, Dee attempts to prove that the drug charges are not just false, but racially motivated.

Arranged: Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. A young Orthodox woman, Rochel Meshenberg, is about to begin her first year as a special education teacher at the local public school. She is also about to begin the process of finding a husband via the time-tested method of using a "shadchen," or matchmaker. As the school year gets underway, Rochel meets Nasira Khaldi, a Muslim woman of Syrian descent. Nasira is also a first-year teacher. The two young women - Rochel in long skirt and conservative blouse, Nasira in headscarf - stand out in this public school context. The principal is forever reminding them that although they are some of her smartest, most gifted teachers, they are also stunted by their outmoded customs, religions, and by their patriarchal worldviews. As the school year progresses, Rochel and Nasira realize they share much in common, not least of which is that they are both going through what the outside world calls "arranged marriages." They develop a friendship that transcends their insular Brooklyn communities and the religions that seem so at odds and, as their friendship deepens, they are exposed to each other's worlds.
