Robert (Bob) Mong

University of North Texas at Dallas

Before joining UNT Dallas, Mong worked as a journalist for more than 40 years, most of it at The Dallas Morning News, where he served as managing editor and later as editor-in-chief. He also gained considerable business experience as the paper's general manager, and as CEO of the Messenger-Inquirer, a daily newspaper in Owensboro, Ky. Throughout his business and journalism career, higher education was Mong's principal outlet for volunteer activities. He became a national leader by creating joint appointments between universities and The Dallas Morning News. These included arrangements with SMU, the University of Texas at Austin, UT-Arlington and UT Dallas. He also has chaired the national board of visitors at the Manship School at Louisiana State University since 2000. Mong currently co-chairs the Southern Dallas Task Force of the Dallas Regional Chamber, a committee that raises visibility of business and entrepreneurial efforts in southern Dallas County.
