UNT has a reputation of diversity and inclusion. In recent years, the student body has seen an increase in diversity, whether it’s an influx of hispanic students or the presence of service animals in classrooms. The student body of UNT is comprised of over 35 hundred students and more than a thousand faculty and staff members, and each one has a story to tell.
UNT builds diversity into its reputation, and for many students, this is a draw.
Which is why our team wanted to look into just how diverse UNT is. We did a series of reports ranging from faculty diversity, first generation students and UNT’s muslim student population. Our team wanted to answer two questions; does UNT have the diversity it boasts in student brochures and on their website, and what does that actually look like for students?
We understand that no one voice can tell the story of an entire population, especially when the topic of diversity is involved. However, we hope by sharing these stories, we can increase the reach of these student and faculty voices. While every member of the Mean Green family has a unique story to tell, we hope this project can encourage understanding, acceptance, and #UNiTy.
