Norval Pohl (1943-2009) served as the 13th UNT president from 2000-2006. Pohl was born and raised in Turlock, CA in the central San Joquin valley. He received his bachelor's degree in psychology from CSU Fresno and later returned there for graduate school, followed by earning his Ph.D. in quantitative systems at Arizona State University. As president, Pohl focused on UNT’s role as a public research university and oversaw the creation of Discovery Park and the College of Engineering. The Chemistry Building and new athletic facilities and residence halls were built during his tenure. He also helped build the recreation center that now bears his name.
