I hope you were inspired by this glimpse into the important
research and creative activities conducted by the dedicated, out-
standing faculty members and bright students at the University of
The depth and breadth of our research illustrates UNT's com-
mitment to the pursuit of understanding - a pursuit that UNT
researchers conduct with the goal of advancing the greater good
and improving our communities, our nation and our world.
The work we do is focused and far reaching, yet always relevant
as we pursue inventive collaborations to address the needs of today
and tomorrow while building a broader knowledge base.
By reaching across disciplines - combining the power of
understanding through math, engineering and the sciences with the
vision inherent in the humanities and arts - UNT discovers new
knowledge and develops new opportunities for further exploration
An early example of this collaboration is our new Teach North
Texas initiative that encourages students majoring in math, science
and computer science to earn teacher certification. Faculty in
our College of Arts and Sciences are partnering with faculty in the
College of Education to ensure that these students - tomorrow's
teachers - will be grounded in an understanding of their discipline
as well as cutting-edge pedagogic techniques. This important work
is funded by $2.4 million in grants, including the second-largest grant
ever issued by the Greater Texas Foundation.
Already this fiscal year, faculty at UNT have secured 50
percent more funding than during the first half of fiscal year 2007.
In addition, several UNT faculty members received NSF CAREER
and Air Force Young Investigator awards as well as support
from Yahoo, Google and other prestigious agencies, foundations
As we implement our strategy for growing Discovery Park,
our 285-acre research park, our partnerships with industry will expand,
and our students - both undergraduate and graduate - will have
more opportunity than ever before to discover the power of ideas.
