How can you get involved?

As we continue along this journey together, there will be several ways to engage and ultimately become a Values Champion. To help us continue this important work and prioritize areas of focus that will lead us to a values-based culture, we will work with campus leadership to appoint several councils and committees including: UNT System Values Council, Campus Values Committees (four committees, one for each institution), UNT System Hiring Workgroup, UNT System Rewards & Recognition Workgroup, and the UNT System Performance Management Workgroup. These groups will be comprised of representatives from across with system with various expertise and backgrounds. 

If you have ideas or feedback, please fill out this feedback form.

  2. Integrate values into processes
    • Communication

Campus Committees

Join the Journey kicked off in October 2022

The information sessions took place in October 2022 and were hybrid, meaning they were in-person and online.  One of the sessions is below for your viewing.

Please view the presentation slides that were presented at the information sessions.


What is the benefit of a values-based organization?  It gives us a sense of one team, a sense of how to engage and support each other.  Importantly, sharing a common purpose gives us a sense of unity.

If you can't understand what is going on, it's hard to collaborate and have trust.  Communications is not a monologue.  It needs to go both ways.  In this environment, we need to start at the campus level and move up so that our job is to make sure we help the campuses achieve their goals.
