The Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas is turning 75. Throughout the 2020-21 academic year, we'll be holding a variety of events and doing outreach programs to connect with you - our valued alumni, supporters, working journalists and communicators, academic colleagues - and others.
We want you to be a part of the celebration.
More important, we want to enlist your help and support to make this festive 75-year event a tremendous success for the many students we nurture and cherish. Our 1,000+ Mayborn students benefit from our greater Mayborn community - in fields like print/digital journalism, broadcasting, advertising, photojournalism and public relations.
We're building this momentous event around four key pillars:
- Honor the Past
- Celebrate the Future
- Educate the Future, and
- Fund the Future
You'll be receiving lots of communications from us throughout the year, but here are a few of the key milestones we want you to be aware of now.
We'll be hosting a series of mentor events, designed to connect you with our students in ways that can help them in their careers.
We'll be sharing our stories - all of us, you included - in a series of "Letters to Frank and Sue" that will help us all to commemorate our treasured memories of the Mayborn School. We want to hear your stories.
We'll be celebrating with our wider Mayborn community - our 40,000 UNT colleagues and students, the citizens of Denton and the Metroplex, current and prospective students and, equally important, the thousands of Mayborn alumni who are at the forefront of the communications and storytelling world around the globe.
But this isn't about us. It's about you. We want to hear from you and learn about you. We want to engage with you and hear your stories about how the Mayborn School has impacted your life.
Please take a moment to visit our "Tell us your story" page and let us learn more about you.
