Keeping the campus beautiful is important to staff members in Administration Services and Risk Management Services. In spring 2019, they decided to team up and take that commitment to a block on the edge of UNT.
It is all part of the Adopt-A-Block program which promotes a beautiful and cleaner campus, giving students, faculty and staff to the opportunity to participate directly in this initiative.
The committed departments volunteered to clean up once a month in the area surrounding Clark, Honors and Rawlins Halls, including the parking lots. In order to help create a clean environment and promote community togetherness.
“We decided to help because we know that the Facilities department will appreciate the collaboration and it’s a way we can show our sense of pride in the community – we hope that volunteer projects like this catch on because it’s important to show students and others that we want to take time to care about our community,” said Brandi Renton, Associate Vice President for Administrative Services.
The Adopt-a-Block program lasts one school year but it can be renewed at the end of the summer semester. If your department wants to help create a better environment, sign up can be found here. Questions about the program? Contact Ashlyn Medina, Ashlyn.Medina@unt.edu.
