The University of North Texas is a Carnegie-designated Tier One research university that is in Denton, Texas, which is north of the Dallas/Fort Worth/Denton Metroplex, the most populous metropolitan area for both Texas and the South, and the fourth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. UNT Denton, as the flagship research campus of the UNT System, has over 42,000 students including more than 8,000 graduate students. Denton is a vibrant college town, like Austin but without the dense population (https://livability.com/best-places/2022-top-100-best-places-to-live-in-the-us/top-100-2022-denton-tx/). Both undergraduate and graduate students participate on faculty research teams. UNT is a Hispanic Serving Institution and a Minority Serving Institution, given that substantial proportions of undergraduate and graduate students at the university are from underrepresented racial/ethnic backgrounds. Thus, successful candidates will possess a strong commitment to diversity issues and active engagement with individuals encompassing diversity in all its forms.
