Accomplishments touted at convocation

Rawlins at Fall Convocation

Sept. 4, 2013

Dear UNT community,

Today’s Fall Convocation 2013 was a great way to kick off the new academic year. We looked back at our Top 10 accomplishments from the past year and looked forward to the greatness that’s to come. We’re succeeding at attracting and retaining high-quality students and transforming them into high-quality graduates.

I’m also happy to announce that we are lifting the hiring freeze. Our budget and enrollment numbers are stabilizing and we had a relatively good state funding outcome from the 83rd legislative session. The clouds are lifting on what had been a fiscally stormy time for UNT. 

Student success is our top priority, so how we invest and spend our dollars still will be tied to how we can help students thrive and grow.

I want to thank each of you for your contributions. I know every day you’re hard at work, giving our students strong support and a great education. When you work for a university like UNT, you can take satisfaction in knowing you’ve helped someone get a college education, and in doing so, you’ve changed their life.

I’m proud of how the UNT spirit has soared through our challenges and changes. We’ve all had to make sacrifices, but it has made us a stronger institution and a stronger campus community. Thank you for your dedication. Have a great year.
