Ronald T. Brown was named President of UNT Dallas yesterday by the UNT Board of Regents and will assume all duties on July 1, 2013.

Brown was already named sole finalist for the job but state law requires that a board of regents not appoint a new president for 21 days, McKinley said.

“His background in higher education and the private sector will enhance the development of UNT Dallas and help position it as a major asset in our region,” said Chancellor Lee Jackson in a press release.

UNT Dallas spokeswoman Heidi McKinley said Brown met with administration yesterday outlining five objectives for UNT Dallas to pursue with current President John Ellis Price, who he will be succeeding, to offer guidance during the transitional period.

One of Brown’s goals is to develop student housing either on or near the UNT Dallas Campus by 2014, McKinley said.

Currently there is no student housing at the 260-acre UNT Dallas campus, McKinley said.

McKinley, who was at the meeting, said that Brown thinks housing is essential.

“There is certainly nothing wrong with being a commuter school, but in order for UNT Dallas to truly realize its potential and continue to grow and to help further bring economic development to the area he thinks that having that housing available is key.”

Brown could not be reached for interview. Read tomorrow’s edition of the NT Daily for the full story.
