Glenn E. Gomez International Artists Endowment in Jazz Studies
The Glenn E. Gomez International Artists Endowment for Jazz Studies has enabled UNT's College of Music to bring
internationally known jazz artists to the university for extended periods of time. "Jazz is an art form handed down from mentor
to student, with the accomplished former student becoming the mentor of yet another student. This is the legacy of jazz,"
said Neil Slater, the former chair of the UNT Division of Jazz Studies, under whose leadership the Gomez Endowment was
established in 1994. "Preparing students for careers in the competitive and ever-changing world of jazz music is about more
than just teaching basic techniques and skills. It's also about inspiring students' creativity and exposing them to what a career
as a jazz musician may hold for them." Glenn Gomez, a graduate of UNT's College of Business and long-time fan of jazz,
said "We're bringing world-renowned jazz artists to UNT so that students can experience firsthand how the master performers
think, create and view life."
