Regents to meet at UNTHSC
The UNT System Board of Regents will meet at the UNT Health Science Center on Aug. 20 and 21.  It will be the first meeting for Student Regent Jennifer Ozan (TCOM ’10), and two new regents to be named by Gov. Rick Perry.

President’s Town Hall meeting on Aug. 25
President Ransom’s next Town Hall meeting will be on Aug. 25 at noon in Everett Hall. At the meeting, President Ransom will discuss the latest UNTHSC news as well as items discussed at the Aug. 21-22 Regents’ meeting. If you’d like to submit an anonymous question or topic for the meeting, e-mail it to by Thursday, Aug. 20.  And, of course, you can ask questions at the meeting as well.  Pizza and bottled water will be served.

Last chance to take the Values Survey
Today is your last chance to share your opinions on the UNT Health Science Center’s organizational values — compassion, integrity, teamwork, innovation, pride and excellence.  The Marketing and Communications Department is gathering feedback through the survey, as well as a values blog, to help determine what our values mean to the institution and how they should guide our decisions.  Take the values survey here, or comment on the values blog here.  Learn more at the UNTHSC Values Web site.

Foodies needed to support UNTHSC
Present your Fundraising Foodie card each time you shop at Central Market in Fort Worth or Southlake and 5 percent of your total purchase will be donated to the Health Science Center’s Go Centers, where UNTHSC students mentor local high school students. Don’t have a Fundraising Foodie card? Get one for yourself and for your friends from Susan Smith in Institutional Advancement. Note that the 5 percent donation is only on personal purchases — UNTHSC P-card purchases are not eligible.

Memories needed
Your help is needed for a new history book currently being prepared to celebrate next year’s 40th anniversary of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Health Science Center.  We are looking for the recollections of students, faculty, staff and alums for possible inclusion.  Please write up and forward your memories of events and personalities from your time at UNTHSC, as well as photographs, to Jean Tips in Marketing and Communications.

Founders’ Activity Center fee increase
Starting Sept. 1, the Founders’ Activity Center usage and locker fees will each increase to $10 per month. The increased fees will apply to all UNTHSC faculty, staff, alumni, faculty/staff dependents, and student dependents. For example, if you are currently paying for only one membership, your fee will increase from $5 to $10 per month. If you are currently paying for three memberships, your fee will increase from $15 per month to $30 per month.

Since the FAC is not state funded, the increased fees will help pay for new equipment and expanded classes and health and wellness programs. Questions? Contact Nicki McGee, health promotions manager, at ext. 2069. UNTHSC logo
