The University of North Texas received a $3 million gift from Satish and Yasmin Gupta to support student scholarships and UNT at Frisco.
As the first endowed gift entrusted to UNT’s branch campus in Collin County, the Satish and Yasmin Gupta Career Center will be established at Frisco Landing.
“We believe that education should go beyond classrooms.”
