UNT brings the DLS

The University of North Texas Distinguished Lecture Series is chartered as a university-wide standing Administrative Committee. The objective is to provide the university and greater communities with a variety of distinguished lecturers and speakers that will bring significant interest, visibility and added prestige to the University of North Texas.


Prestigious speakers

The selection of speakers will be conducted on a consensus basis, after suggestions have been sought throughout the university. The selected speakers must reflect a wide public recognition and appeal. Under no circumstances will the Series be used to promote the discipline of any particular academic unit, department, school or college within the University.

Your committee

The Series will be administered by a committee composed of three (3) faculty representatives appointed by the Faculty Senate, three (3) staff representatives appointed by the UNT Staff Council, six (6) students appointed by the UNT Student Government Association, and one permanent ex officio faculty and/or staff representative to serve as administrative assistance to the committee, appointed by the Vice President for Student Affairs. The President of the UNT Student Government Association or his/her designee shall serve as chair.
