Jan 27,2014

V. Lane Rawlins, who joined UNT in May 2010 as an interim appointment, said “I never dreamed I would stay more than a few months, but UNT is such a special place that I fell in love with the university, its students, faculty and staff."

During President Rawlins’ tenure, he has helped the university community define four bold goals; quality in education, research, effectiveness. and engagement. He also helped the university plan for strategic enrollment growth, which has led to two years of record setting freshman classes in size, talent and diversity. And, the university is creating a culture of data-based assessment and improvement that will ensure UNT continues to achieve efficiencies and reallocate funds in support of excellence.

“I am honored to have served as president of this great university for the past three years, and I hope I have helped shape its future. I believe the academic and administrative leadership in place will continue to guide the university toward greater excellence,” Rawlins said.  President Rawlins Retires from UNT
