UNT Day at the Capitol

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.

Plan for 2021

Our 2021 efforts will look a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic — we’re planning a grassroots letter-writing campaign to share the value of a UNT degree and gain support for the university’s funding priorities.
