The University of North Texas cares about the well-being of our students, staff, and faculty. Because of this commitment, we provide multiple resources and services that support campus members. In an effort to be proactive, UNT created a network of professionals who are commitment to a caring program of identification, intervention, and response in order to support students, staff, and faculty, and to provide our community with the greatest level of protection.
