Your gift counts.
Every gift made to the College of Business helps us advance toward new standards of excellence in teaching and research. Due to the significant gap between state funding and the cost of providing a top-100 business education, your investment in the College of Business is critical. Whether you give annually, establish an endowment, or make a planned gift, your support will make a difference in our students’ lives.
Greatest Needs in the College of Business
Dean’s Excellence Fund
The College of Business Dean’s excellence fund is a critical, unrestricted fund that enables the College of Business to respond to opportunities and challenges as they occur.
When you support the Dean’s Excellence Fund, you support the strategic vision of the College by allowing for the Dean to have flexibility in directing the use of resources to the priorities of the college.
Professional Leadership Program
The Professional Leadership Program (P.L.P.) is a mentoring and leadership development program for students at UNT. It serves to develop our top students with the professional soft skills needed to have a leadership edge in any industry or position they seek after college.
The program is currently funded in two ways:
- State funding, which covers staff salaries and expenses
- Donations, which help offset costs related to program activities
Your donations enhance the program activities offered, and our students’ experiences, by providing additional networking and leadership-enhancing opportunities.
Providing students with the opportunity to study abroad can be life changing. By participating in a study abroad program, students are able to develop cross-cultural communication skills and expand employment and networking opportunities.
All students deserve the opportunity to have their resume stand out, but not all students can afford to study abroad. Help to make that difference by giving a gift to the College of Business study abroad program today.
Glen Taylor Insurance Chair
Dr. Glen L. Taylor has played an integral role in the success of the UNT Insurance program. Through his lifelong involvement, the program has produced hundreds of qualified graduates who now enjoy successful careers as professionals in insurance, financial services, risk management, employee benefits and related fields.
To be named an endowed chair is one of the highest honors to be bestowed upon a faculty member. Your support of the Glen Taylor Insurance Chair therefore ensures the continued success of the program by attracting an outstanding scholar to its faculty for a continued quality insurance education in the College of Business.
Other Ways to Give
When you give to the College of Business annually, you make a difference in the lives of students, faculty, and staff who study, teach, and work to strengthen the college. These collective acts of generosity help ensure that a UNT education remains affordable and within reach for our deserving students.

Donors who choose to establish planned gifts to benefit the College of Business help secure the future of UNT.
Working with our planned-giving experts, you can choose to give an outright gift or defer your giving through a bequest. You can even take advantage of a charitable gift annuity or other life-income gift that enables you to establish a legacy now and still provides you with an income during your lifetime.
We highly value your insight and business acumen in teaching our students how to become the leaders of tomorrow through hands-on experiences. By offering students different experiences, industry insights, networking receptions, and real-world opportunities to promote business leadership, you can make a tangible difference.
