There is a new college team in town.
The fees will support an athletics program that includes men’s and women’s basketball, cross country and track, starting in the 2020-21 academic year.
The university, on University Hills Drive at East Camp Wisdom Road, plans to add men’s and women’s soccer in the future.
“This is a momentous day for UNT Dallas as we take another significant step toward becoming an all-encompassing university in the heart of southern Dallas,” UNT Dallas President Bob Mong said. “Athletics will enhance the student and alumni experience, increase our visibility and bring awareness of the university’s mission to make college accessible and affordable for all.”
