It is composed of seven academic departments and eight interdisciplinary centers, including two National Resource Centers (Asia Center and the Center for Latin American Studies).

About the University

University of Utah: The University of Utah (The U) is the state’s public flagship institution of higher education with an enrollment of approximately 23,900 undergraduate and 7,800 graduate students, and is classified by the Carnegie Foundation among the 115 research universities with the “highest research activity” in the nation. Forbes recently ranked the University of Utah as one of America’s best employers and U.S. News & World Report ranked it as one of the best national universities.

The U is located in the Wasatch mountain range foothills overlooking Salt Lake City, the Great Salt Lake, and the Great Basin’s west desert. Salt Lake City was recently ranked in the top ten in economic growth among large metropolitan areas. In addition to an active arts culture, the area also offers unparalleled recreational opportunities, with ten world-class ski resorts and several national parks within easy access from the city. Additionally, SLC is currently ranked 7th in the nation for its vibrant LGBTQ+ community. More information about the Salt Lake City area can be found at www.visitsaltlake.com
