(Denton, Texas) — The University of North Texas Board of Regents votes unanimously to name Dr. Neal Smatresk president of UNT.
Dr. Smatresk has served for the past four years as the president of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Smatresk, he grew up in Buffalo, New York, but spent the first 25 years of his career in Texas. The University of North Texas is the nation’s 24th largest public university.
Smatresk begins his new duties in Texas on February 3, 2014.
