Why people and processes are priorities:

At UNT we will become a first-choice institution for students, faculty, and staff and a best place to work. We want to be a place where people flourish. To achieve this vision and improve our reputation we will give members of our community the chance to learn and grow in an inclusive environment that will enhance their success. Thus, supporting faculty, staff, and student development is a top priority for our institution. We also need to create a culture that shows the caring nature of UNT by improving customer service so we can maximize the time and attention we spend addressing our mission. Supporting people, developing better processes, and providing a high-quality infrastructure will improve our efficiency and effectiveness.


We will attract, develop, and celebrate our campus community members to make UNT an outstanding environment in which to work and learn.
