Note from the Deans

UNT Day of GivingWe are excited to celebrate the second annual UNT Day of Giving, culminating on May 1!

For 24 hours in May, we have a unique opportunity to unite as a community, championing the next generation of UNT students and supporting projects that drive innovation and progress. 

Thanks to generous donations from faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends in the community, more than $600,000 was raised on UNT's first Day of Giving last year to support student success and the UNT community. Your contributions play a vital role in providing scholarships and ensuring the continued success of our current students.

This year, CVAD's goal is to support our academic programs by concentrating on donations to our funds for scholarships, study abroad opportunities, or CVAD programs of study of your selection. Know that you are instrumental in advancing the mission of UNT and CVAD by creating meaningful opportunities inside and outside the classroom.

We can achieve remarkable milestones together and are incredibly grateful for your continued commitment to UNT and CVAD. I encourage you to become part of the college's legacy by making an early gift or contributing on May 1. Let’s unite to maximize our impact on UNT’s Day of Giving.

Thank you for your continued support! You are an integral part of the UNT CVAD community.
