Invest in the College of Business
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.
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.
Internship and Career Resource Center Endowment
A donation toward the College of Business Internship and Career Resource Center Endowment will drastically change the way students receive the support they need. Your gift will facilitate the development of a self-sustaining space for our students to thrive after graduation.
This endowment will convert our modest Career Center offices into a full-service, self-sustaining resource for all College of Business students to access throughout their academic journey. Once complete, the space will house a total of six offices (four advising offices and two additional employee offices), one large seminar and presentation center, two group work areas, one computing area and one welcome desk/waiting area.
More adequate space and resources for all of our students’ career-related needs, coupled with additional dedicated staff, will ultimately transform student outcomes and lives.
Real Estate Professorship
Investing in an endowed professorship in real estate for the College of Business will elevate our student experiences and opportunities by hiring a well-revered professor to enhance the program. The real estate program at UNT is currently made up of four full-time faculty that all hold doctoral degrees from nationally recognized universities. With your help in adding a professorship to roster, UNT's real estate program will undoubtedly soar to new heights.
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.
