Faculty credentialing at UNT is administered through the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Chief Human Resource Officer for faculty is the Vice Provost for Academic Resources.
UNT conducts periodic reviews of all academic degree programs in order to promote academic quality and productivity and to assure alignment with UNT’s mission. Academic programs are reviewed in the context of an overall departmental review. The department, dean, graduate dean, provost and vice president for academic affairs use the results to guide university planning, determine program directions, establish objectives, shape institutional goals and promote institutional effectiveness.
The Office of Data, Analytics, & Institutional Research is responsible for coordinating the program review process. Although most programs are reviewed every 7 years, a program can be reviewed outside the typical 7-year cycle, at the request of the supervising dean.
The Office of University Accreditation maintains a contract with Qualtrics to assist college, department and program administrators in the development of effective, standardized survey instruments. Access to this software is available through the MyUNT web portal.
