UNT World Mourns the Passing of Gary Finney

It is with great sadness that we inform the UNT World of the passing of Gary Finney. Gary had been a valued member of our Human Resources team since 2013 and will be deeply missed. Please keep Gary’s family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.

A UNT Dallas scholarship fund will be created in Gary’s honor. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to contribute to the fund may do so through the UNT Dallas Foundation.

Any colleagues that feel overwhelmed by grief may visit with counselors through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Our free, confidential, EAP is available to help employees at all UNT System locations with family, legal or financial issues, substance abuse or other stressful events. EAP programs are available to retirement-eligible employees, retirees, household members and dependents, and may be accessed at

Employees may self-refer to EAP, or managers may refer an employee. EAP consultations (up to six per year per personal session) are free and confidential.
