Dear alumni and friends,
As we celebrate UNT's 130th anniversary, our 2020-21 academic year looks quite different than our previous years, with masks as a new accessory and social distancing in place. But our commitment to excellence and access to higher education for all populations is as steadfast as ever. With record-setting fall enrollment, we welcomed nearly 41,000 students into our fold and we continued to climb in the U.S. News & World Report rankings.
This UNT Insider issue highlights our newly achieved status as a Hispanic-Serving Institution, Nicole Dash's appointment as dean of the College of Health and Public Service, and roundups recent UNT mentions in the news. You'll also learn about some of the COVID Heroes who helped UNT transition classes and services to virtual delivery during the spring.
Thank you for all you do to help support UNT. I look forward to when we can once again join together on campus and in the community for concerts, sporting events and celebrations of each other -- and our great university.
