Celebrating UNT’s Excellence


Enriching students’ lives and providing opportunities for inquiry and investigation are at the heart of UNT’s caring community. As a Carnegie-ranked Tier One research university, we’re fueled by our mission of preparing students to thrive in a rapidly changing world and become the innovative leaders of tomorrow. 

The Wingspan Gala is a celebration of UNT’s excellence and highlights the achievements of our UNT family and university. The event showcases what makes UNT a unique, special place and includes the presentation of the Wings of Eagles Presidential Award. Proceeds from the preeminent university event benefit the President’s Scholarship Fund to support UNT’s best and brightest students.
