​​​​​​​UNT’s chapter of the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) has been named Regional Chapter of the Year for the first time in its history.
Established in 1972, ALPFA is the longest standing Latino organization for business students. Throughout its history, it has empowered the Latino community by offering access to professional development and career building resources.
“It is an honor to be the faculty advisor for ALPFA, along with Dr. Lineros. I'm incredibly proud of our outstanding student leadership. Even in the current virtual environment, ALPFA-UNT has kept its members engaged and community spirit alive. I wish them the very best as they continue to work on empowering the next generation of business leaders,” said Madhuri Bandla, senior lecturer at the G. Brint Ryan College of Business.

"Working with the Accounting department’s UNT student leadership and Professor Bandla has been a personal inspiration. The students’ ability to come together as a family and forge ahead has not only grown the organization, but collectively improved the Denton community. The social responsibility they exhibit challenges all of us to do more, care more, and make this nation a reflection of their best," added Clinical Assistant Professor Jose Lineros.
ALPFA has approximately 160 chapters competing annually for this distinction, with only six winners announced.
