UNT commencement ceremony

Helping Peers Succeed

Celebrate your graduation by helping future students succeed through our senior class initiative: Helping Peers Succeed. Every year, current students show their UNT spirit by supporting scholarships and programs that directly impact fellow College of Health and Public Service students through the Helping Peers Succeed initiative.

Before you walk across the stage to commemorate your college degree, establish your UNT legacy with a gift as small as $20.24 — a number that honors your graduation year. Your contribution will help share the wealth of UNT resources and experiences you’ve enjoyed with students following in your footsteps. Donors will receive a special philanthropy graduation cord and recognition at commencement.

To receive an HPS philanthropy cord, a minimum donation of your graduating school year ($20.24) must be made. HPS students graduating spring and summer 2024 are currently eligible to purchase a philanthropy graduation cord.

Contributing is easy. Simply:

  1. Make your gift using the form on this page.
  2. Beginning Monday, April 1, 2024, through Friday, May 3, 2024, bring a copy of your confirmation email to the Dean’s Suite front desk in Chilton Hall, Suite 289 to receive your graduation cord.
  3. Wear your cord to commencement and stand tall with pride!
