Like all great universities, North Texas is constantly growing
- In enrollment.
- In research.
- In educational programs.
- In community partnerships.
- And in campus facilities.
North Texas' trailblazing programs in music, art, teaching and the humanities are nationally renowned. Our emerging strengths in science and technology are making headlines and earning record grants. Now, our new stadium in Mean Green Village will finally catapult the quality of our overall university athletic facilities to equal - or better - standing with our Division 1 competitors.
North Texas' reputation is growing.
The U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Colleges 2010 guide named North Texas as one of the top national universities that are "leading the pack" in innovative changes, in academics, faculty, students, campus and facilities. North Texas is Texas' only public university on the list.
Coupled with a "Best in the West" ranking from The Princeton Review and being named by The Chronicle for Higher Education as one of only five universities that is thriving despite the challenges facing higher education in the United States, it is clear that North Texas is standing out and people are noticing.
To keep North Texas leading the pack, we are making investments across the board, from new research initiatives to new recruiting strategies, new degree programs to new facilities. And that includes building muscle into a university athletics program that we know has the potential to be among the best.
Each advancement we make strengthens our reputation and improves the value of every North Texas degree.
North Texas is dedicated to a first-class campus experience.
North Texas is Texas' third-largest university and still growing. Investing in a first-class campus experience is part of ensuring that North Texas, just like many of the nation's best universities, is excellent in everything we do. It's also part of a long-term strategic vision. A new stadium was included in North Texas' latest campus master plan, which was adopted by the UNT System Board of Regents in 2005.
The new stadium may be the largest construction project ever taken on by the university, but it is just one of many recent and current campus improvement projects. Among them: the critically acclaimed Murchison Performing Arts Center, which just celebrated its tenth anniversary; an award-winning student recreation center; a student health, advising and money management center; several residence halls; and a new chemistry building. We've also renovated North Texas' research campus, Discovery Park. Our new Life Sciences Complex opened in 2010, and a new Business Leadership Building will open in 2011.
In 2001, North Texas began planning one of the finest collegiate sports communities in the nation, Mean Green Village. Thanks to the support of loyal alumni and donors (in Texas, state funds cannot be used for the construction of college athletic facilities), many outstanding campus facilities are now dedicated to both the athletic and academic success of North Texas student-athletes.
We are committed to excellence in everything we do - from adding value to every degree earned here to building a spectacular, one-of-a-kind football stadium.
We invite you to join us for an exciting and richly rewarding journey.
