Communications Team examines UNTHSC values
What values represent the  Health Science Center – and how do those values translate to our day-to-day jobs? A Values Task Force composed of members from the Communication Team will explore that issue this summer. Values are the key principles that specify how we will accomplish our mission and vision.  They drive how we will operate in every organization, in every classroom, with every patient and with the community.
A few years ago, Health Science Center leaders determined these as organizational values:

  • Compassion
  • Excellence
  • Innovation
  • Integrity
  • Pride
  • Teamwork

However, these words may mean different things to different people.  The Values Task Force will lead an institution-wide conversation on the meaning of these words to people throughout the campus and UNT Health and develop a common definition for each.  They will do this by:

  • Setting up a special Web site that anyone may use to submit input
  • Visiting selected meetings to gain thoughts

The Task Force, along with the Communications Team, will summarize the results for the Administrative Thinking Council to consider this fall.  Task Force members are:

  • Diane Bradley, School of Public Health
  • Liz Davis, MEd, Graduate School of Biomedical Science
  • Craig Elam, MLS, Library
  • Carol Knisley, Osteopathic Research Center
  • Susan Ross, Finance & Administration
  • Jim Sims, PhD, Safety Officer
  • Trisha Van Duser, EdD, Student Affairs
  • Michelle West, Development
  • Jackie Williams, Health Institutes of Texas
  • Patrice Williams, Legal
  • Terry Morgan, Facilities Management
