Hotspot: People in the Zone

Hotspot banner

Welcome to Hotspot, a small spot online where UNT computing and information technology professionals and associated staff can rave about themselves, their geekiness and contributions to transforming UNT into a nationally prominent university. This is the good news area – the place to learn about colleagues in action, their roles and how members of the IT community are raising the benchmarks of excellence!

Nominations: Nominate a person in the zone today by sending the name of your nominee to Benchmarks Hotspot.

Coming this fall!
