About Giving to the DSA


Tuition and student fees do not provide funding for all of the programs offered by the Division of Student Affairs at UNT. We rely on private support to develop, innovate and grow programs that foster a well-rounded campus experience and prepare students for future success.

The Student Affairs development officer works with alumni, corporations, and foundations, and other supporters, one relationship at a time, to match their charitable interests with the priorities of our division.
