UNT will create the G. Brint Ryan College of Business thanks to a $30 million gift – the largest in UNT's history – from alumnus G. Brint Ryan and his wife Amanda.

Dear alumni and friends,

On an unseasonably warm Feb. 4, we announced UNT's largest-ever gift of $30 million – from alumnus G. Brint Ryan ('88, '88 M.S.) and his wife Amanda – to create the G. Brint Ryan College of Business. This gift will be transformational for UNT and help to elevate the College of Business' national profile. Because of Brint's gift, over the next seven years, we will establish new endowed professorships, strategic academic program initiatives and continue to increase our national reputation. Named colleges are known for having higher rankings, garnering greater public attention, and attracting top-quality students and scholars from around the country.

Brint has long supported and served UNT through leadership positions with College of Business advisory boards and the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, and as chairman of the UNT System Board of Regents. Read more about the gift announcement in the press release. Read more about Brint and his gift in a UNT Insider special announcement.

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
President
