It's official: V. Lane Rawlins named UNT's 15th president

Rawlins sole finalist standing ovation

The UNT System Board of Regents formally approved the selection of V. Lane Rawlins as the 15th president of its flagship institution, UNT, Dec. 6. Rawlins was named the sole finalist for the position by the board Nov. 12, a decision greeted by applause, above.

Rawlins, former president of Washington State University and the University of Memphis, had been serving a one-year appointment since May.

The regents also approved the hiring of Dan McCarney as UNT’s 18th head football coach. McCarney, 57, has more than 30 years of college coaching experience, including 12 years as a head coach at Iowa State University. He previously was assistant head coach at the University of Florida.

Since May, Rawlins has worked to streamline UNT administratively, developing methods to improve shared decision-making and university community participation as well as creating a planning committee to combine the university’s overall and research strategic plans into a single consolidated strategic plan to serve as a roadmap for the university’s future.

UNT’s aspirations are similar to those of Washington State during Rawlins’ 2000-2007 presidency, where he guided strategic planning that resulted in substantial progress in education and research. Rawlins’ administration advanced the critical connection between outstanding undergraduate education and world-class research, and strengthened WSU's image and reputation as one of the nation's leading public research universities.

Following his retirement from the WSU presidency, Rawlins served from 2007 to 2009 as the interim director of the William D. Ruckelshaus Center for Conflict Resolution, a regional program of WSU and the University of Washington. Rawlins served as president of the University of Memphis from 1991 to 2000. He also served as the University of Alabama System's vice chancellor for academic affairs, and WSU's vice provost and department chair in economics.
