Legislative Advocacy for UNT
UNT Day at the Capitol presents a bold opportunity for alumni, students and friends to increase public and legislative support for the University of North Texas.
During the 2019 legislative session, more than 120 members of the UNT family visited legislators and turned the halls of the Capitol Mean Green.
Celebrating Success in 2021
Our 2021 efforts looked a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic — but we achieved tremendous success! We planned a grassroots letter-writing campaign to share the value of a UNT degree and gain support for the university’s funding priorities. Thanks to you and your passion, we saw the following impact:
- The Legislature added much-needed formula funding for enrollment growth at UNT. Overall, the UNT System received about $24 million more in funding than initially expected.
- UNT’s general revenue was increased by $38 million, or 19.5%.
- UNT received $500,000 for its Center for Agile and Adaptive Additive Manufacturing (CAAAM).
