The University of North Texas in Frisco has announced a $3 million donation that will be used to support student scholarships and establish the campus’ new career center.

The donation comes from Satish and Yasmin Gupta.

Satish is the founder, president, and CEO of a private Dallas-based steel company known as SB International Inc., according to a press release from UNT Frisco.

He gained an economics degree from Loyola College in India before later coming to the United States, where he earned an MBA at the University of Dallas. He also founded the Gupta Agarwal Charitable Foundation in 2005.

Gupta has given endowments to organizations such as his and his wife’s alma mater in 2016 as well as to Baylor Scott & White’s Plano Campus in 2018.

“This transformative gift from Satish and Yasmin Gupta will serve as a catalyst in our ongoing mission to extend UNT at Frisco’s reach and impact, enabling us to serve a greater number of students in North Texas and foster stronger connections between higher education and industry to best support industry needs and our students’ career aspirations,” said UNT President Neal Smatresk, in the press release.

“With this visionary support, we can provide even more scholarships, cutting-edge programs and immersive learning opportunities for our students.”

The endowment will be used for the foundation of the campus’ new career center, which will be named after the couple. Gupta said in the press release that he was proud to offer this latest donation to UNT.

“We believe that education should go beyond classrooms, and we’re proud that the Satish and Yasmin Gupta Career Center will represent our commitment to UNT students and help equip them with the necessary tools and experiences to excel in their chosen fields,” he said in the press release.

“It is our hope that our giving to create this career center will help thousands and thousands of students in their journey, in their career or in helping enhance their families — because we know that when you believe in yourself, your dreams will come true.”

A dedication ceremony is expected to take place on September 15 at 4:30 p.m.
