DEI header - diverse faces

The University of North Texas System strongly believes in the transformative power of a college degree and that higher education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of race, gender identity/expression, age, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status or diverse perspectives. We cultivate an inclusive culture of learning and discovery that embrace a broad range of ideas and approaches as we strive to solve problems, innovate, create opportunities and transform lives.

The University of North Texas System Office of Equal Opportunity provides guidance for employees regarding state and federal programs related to equity and non-discrimination in the workplace.

The UNT System is committed to providing an employment and learning environment at each component -- University of North Texas, UNT Health Science Center, UNT Dallas/UNT Dallas College of Law and UNT System Administration -- that gives each person the opportunity to be a productive and valued employee.
