Empowering one another to make values-based decisions creates a culture of promoting individual potential. The UNT System strives on being quality stewards of resources, while encouraging the growth, well-being, and success of our employees, students, and the people we serve. The UNT System combines the strength of our people and a forward-thinking approach of creating new ideas and maintaining the values-based decisions approach.
Our values shape our culture and our work environment, and in the long run, this approach will benefit our employees and our students. Furthermore, our values will prepare our students for critical and important decisions, and will assist them in interaction and engagement with others.
It’s Never Too Late to Join the Journey!

Build a Sustainable High-performance Culture
Based on the People Ink Built on Values® Culture System and the book, Built on Values, by Ann Rhoades.
- Building a sustainable organizational culture is intentional, systematic, and continuous.
- Leaders Drive Values > Behaviors > Culture > Performance.
- The foundation of a healthy high-performing culture is the Values Blueprint: Values and Behaviors.
