“We are, at almost every point of our day, immersed in cultural diversity: faces, clothes, smells, attitudes, values, traditions, behaviors, beliefs, rituals.”
- Randa Abdel-Fattah
From the Vice President
The cultural diversity described in the quote above is evident as the university community is a microcosm of the larger world. A world UNT wants its graduates to enter boldly with the cultural competence to help them succeed anywhere. A world where UNT is lauded as a research university that welcomes and supports “world-class” faculty and staff as they holistically approach solving societal grand challenges. Over the past year, the Division of Institutional Equity & Diversity continued its work of fostering an inclusive campus community where equity and diversity are core values.
The university’s imminent status as a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) underscored the importance of our efforts to recognize, accept, respect and celebrate UNT’s diversity in order to better serve our diverse students and enhance retention. Recognized by INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine as a “top college for diversity,” UNT joined a select group of ninety-six institutions across the country receiving this distinction.
As you review the selected activities and accomplishments chronicled in this annual report, know that we are not content to rest on our laurels. The division has made great strides in moving from its original identity to its authentic identity as the central unit providing leadership for the university’s equity, diversity and inclusion efforts. Yet, there is much more that we want to do! We invite you to join the division as a strategic diversity partner or ally as we work to make UNT even better.
Joanne G. Woodard, Vice President

LGBTQ and Ally Scholarship
Congratulations to Hanlyn Tyler
Hanlyn is double majoring in political science and public relations, on the pre-law track. Hanlyn helped establish the first Gay Straight Alliance at their high school and has since gotten involved in Kerr Hall A’s Executive Council as well the Student Government Association. As an SGA intern, Hanlyn has worked on an amendment to the SGA constitution to remove all gendered language to make policies more inclusive, and is working with UNT administration to make similar changes to the Code of Student Conduct.
“I am excited about this scholarship because the money will directly allow me to pay for a year-long LSAT prep course that will allow me to achieve a better score on the law school aptitude test and will therefore empower a transgender person to receive a better law education. With that education, I would be more equipped to help LGBTQ+ people with legal issues and further my career in policymaking than I would have been without this scholarship. I am also excited to volunteer with the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity and learn important lessons on how to make higher education more inclusive and assist them in that cause.”
International Pronouns Day
Inaugural Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
International Pronouns Day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities.
The holiday season will soon be here and the Office of Spiritual Life has compiled a wonderful list of religious holidays and their meanings. Take a moment to learn more about other holidays, cultures and celebrations:
