The importance of wearing ID badges

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, located in the Cultural District of Fort Worth, Texas, is a campus spanning 33 acres with 20-plus buildings.

As we launch a new academic year, we would like to remind everyone of the importance of wearing and displaying their identification badge throughout campus. The badge identifies you as a member of our community and more readily identifies visitors who may need assistance in locating their destination. The badge also functions to allow for secure access by members of our community to areas that require a badge for entry based on specific needs. Currently, there are several areas across the HSC campus that are badge access only, including IREB floors 2, 3 and 4; MET floors 3,4 and 5; and the Library, to name a few.

We ask for your cooperation in wearing your badge as we work and strive toward achieving a balance between security and free movement. Our goal is to ensure the safety and security of our faculty, staff and students on campus while allowing for as much flexibility as possible.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Ruth Roman, MPH
Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer
