Student Life

Leadership. Tradition. Success.

The Department of Student Engagement supports the mission of the University and Student Affairs by enhancing  the holistic education and development of UNT Dallas  students through inclusive and affirming opportunities and  experiences where they learn about themselves, others, and  the world in which they live.

UNT Dallas is the first and only public university in the city. Because we are close to downtown Dallas, we feel uniquely connected to the city and region we serve. However, being in a large city does not make us a “metropolitan university.” We are a metropolitan university because we reflect the social makeup and diversity of Dallas and the surrounding region. Our student body is already among the most diverse in the nation, and we believe diversity enhances the university experience.

Leadership & Involvement Awards

The University of North Texas at Dallas Student Engagement Department & the Office of Experiential Learning sponsor an annual celebration of students, staff, faculty, and student organizations each year. We invite the UNTD community to nominate currently enrolled students, employed faculty/staff, student organization advisors, and registered student  organizations for the Leadership & Involvement Awards. The purpose of these awards is to acknowledge the outstanding work and contributions  made in 2020-2021 to improve our campus, community and our world.
