UNT Alumni Association Membership

November 21st, 2016 | Posted in Alumni News


As the UNT Alumni Association continues to grow, several changes have taken place to match the current interests and needs of its members. Some of these changes included the addition of more regional programming, increased student scholarships, and hiring new staff positions.

Membership fees have not changed in more than 20 years despite increasing needs of the association and its members. In September 2017, membership fees will increase in order to provide more opportunities to alumni members and the UNT alumni family.

“With the increase in available resources, the alumni association will be introducing new member benefits, increased alumni programming, and updated fulfillment packages that offer higher quality membership materials,” said Rob McInturf, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association.

These changes to membership are a testament to the growth of the UNT Alumni Association and the University as a whole. It is a demonstration of the commitment and dedication of the UNT alumni family to a lasting Mean Green legacy.
