Heading 2

Over the past five years, few public research universities have risen in stature as quickly for both academic excellence and the creation of life-changing technological and medical innovation than the University of Utah. With the urban and cultural advantages of Salt Lake City out its front door, and the majestic Wasatch Mountains and some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in the world in its backyard, the University of Utah is the state’s oldest and largest public institution of higher education, currently hosting 31,000 students. In 2011, the University will further its mission of excellence by joining one of the country’s most prestigious conferences— both athletically and academically—in the Pac-12.
