College of Public Affairs and Community Service University of North Texas Denton, Texas The School The College of Public Affairs and Community Service is an applied professional school offering eleven undergraduate B.A. and B.S. programs, eight master’s programs, and one Ph.D. program. The school has 1,800 majors, attracts an average of 2.5 million dollars per year in external research and community service program monies from foundations and local, state, and federal sources. Alumni of the College of Public Affairs and Community Service are currently in positions that include, for example, contingency planner for natural catastrophes; manager of health service delivery for the elderly; city manager; rehabilitation counselor; social work director; research director; director of clinic for autistic children; addictions counselor; policy analyst; health planning analyst; police chief; FBI agent; and administrator of long-term care facility. For more than 28 years the College of Public Affairs and Community Service and its faculty and staff have brought the best resources of their disciplines to bear on factors that affect the quality of community life. In addition to quality education, innovative research is ongoing in the areas of social service delivery and administration, city management, health care, geriatrics, law enforcement, substance abuse, cross-cultural communication, emergency preparedness, and economic development. In PACS, traditional academic disciplines and tools are used in new ways that make a difference—for students and communities. The College of Public Affairs and Community Service aspires to be one of a small group of applied social science schools in the nation who truly integrate teaching, research, and community service. We promote interdisciplinary scholarship both in the classroom and in the real world. Through our teaching, research, and service we continue to influence the quality of life in the local and global community. PACS is focused on solving problems through both basic and applied research and educating problem solvers through our teaching. Because of our location, in one of America’s fastest growing metropolitan areas, we are able to develop and test alternatives and find solutions to complex issues that abound in the urban environment. We also provide special opportunities for students by involving them in our research and providing a context for experiential learning in community settings. Through collaboration with both private and public organizations we believe that our ability to effect change, educate future professionals, and answer questions vital to a complex world is enhanced. Through the use of traditional teaching methods, advanced technologies, off-campus locations, and a belief in the importance of life long education the College of Public Affairs and Community Service, at the University of North Texas, is poised to make an impact in Texas, the region, and beyond.

External Development Level of Support

Successful accomplishment of the school mission, realization of its vision, and meeting its goals requires support from the school, its faculty and staff, the University of North Texas, and the PACS Advisory Board. This support comes through contributions of time, energy, and resources. The school recognizes that individual members and the organizations that they represent will vary in their ability to provide each of these types of support. We anticipate members will vary in their levels of support and in how they provide support. We expect that the diversity of memberships in the PACS Advisory Board will equalize across all the needs for support in the school.

Development Officer

The College of Public Affairs and Community Service is represented by a development director who works through the UNT Advancement Center which maintains the on-going development work for the University. Advancement is responsible for capital campaigns, annual telefund campaigns, and fund raising.

Fund Raising

The school can not reach its goals without external financial resources. The dean and development officer initiate fund raising. The PACS Advisory Board is expected to support the School’s development work. Participation in fund-raising activities, networking with contacts and alumni, and proposal development are examples of possible fund raising activities. The School is appreciative of any direct gifts received from the PACS Advisory Board members. It is anticipated that, at minimum, each board member will help PACS through either personal or company contributions on an annual basis. The school requires support for the following activities.
