A Presidential Search Advisory Committee has been appointed to identify candidates to lead the University of North Texas, the flagship of the UNT System. The next president of UNT will succeed V. Lane Rawlins, who announced in early March that he will retire once a new president is appointed sometime in 2013.
Rawlins, who joined UNT in May 2010 as an interim appointment, said "I never dreamed I would stay more than a few months, but UNT is such a special place that I fell in love with the university, its students, faculty and staff." He plans to remain president through the search for and arrival of his successor.
The Revisionaries, a documentary created by University of North Texas graduate Scott Thurman, will air nationally on PBS affiliates on the PBS Independent Lens series. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the film will be shown at 10 p.m. Jan. 29 (Tuesday) on KERA-TV.
