Bridging Gaps Podcast


Lesa Roe, Chancellor for the University of North Texas System, and Chief Communications Officer Paul Corliss co-host UNT World's Bridging Gaps Podcast. This thoughtful podcast spotlights innovators and leaders from UNT World – the University of North Texas, University of North Texas at Dallas, University of North Texas Health Science Center and UNT System Administration – within the context of how we bridge gaps and change the world through education, research, innovation and leadership. 

Each month Roe and Corliss visit with a leader or leaders from a UNT World institution – including students, faculty and staff – that are making an impact in Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond. The Bridging Gaps podcast provides a forum for purposeful conversation about how UNT World fulfills its purpose to transform lives and create economic opportunity.

Bridging Gaps is recorded and produced each month from UNT World headquarters at the Lee F. Jackson Building in Downtown Dallas. Please contact the producers of Bridging Gaps at with questions, comments or guest ideas Bridging Gaps.
