Achieving Success

Growing up on a farm and spending my career as a university president has taught me that you succeed by showing up, putting in the work and being persistent. And you can do a lot more with the help of others and teamwork.

These time-tested principles drive our Succeed at UNT initiative. Through it, we offer students tips and access to campus resources to help them thrive.

As any great university, we have high expectations for our students. We know that takes a first-class support system as well, and they will find it here.

This summer we graduated thousands of students and welcomed a new freshman class. We watch dreams become plans and plans become reality. That is the journey, and we have attempted to capture the spirit of that journey in a new video.

A UNT education helps students rise to the top. Read about our alumni, such as longtime Dallas City Manager Mary Suhm ('74 M.S., '84 M.B.A.) and those working in digital retailing.

Helping our students succeed and find their green light to greatness is what we're all about.
