School Information
"Imagine what you want to accomplish, then really making it happen. Imagine designing and publishing a video game before earning your diploma, starting a business while studying business, and doing all this in a setting that begs you to get out and do something... Imagine, then Do. Opportunity awaits and all things are possible at a place we call Imagine U. The University of Utah." The university enrolls over 31,000 students, has a 17:1 student-faculty ratio, and over 150 academic programs.

General Information
Individual institutions within the University of Utah have outlined their Diversity and Antiracism plans. The S.J. Quinney College of Law released its new diversity and antiracism plan which included steps to retain a "critical mass" of both students and faculty from underrepresented groups, enhancing antiracism trainings for faculty and students, and examining the law school curriculum. See developments below:

Critical Race Training Activity

  • Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training

    The College of Law will be taking steps to identify and address "implicit bias...in the College of Law community by continuing to provide and encourage antiracism training for faculty, staff, and students."

  • Curriculum Changes and Requirements

    The College of Law will be taking steps to examine its curriculum to "make sure that we are educating our students about inequality and racial oppression within our justice system and in society in all disciplines."

  • Resources

    The university hosted a forum titled "A Call for Racial Healing", which centers around two questions: "How do we, as a community, make anti-racism an everyday action? How do we begin healing from our nation's legacy of anti-Black racism and systemic inequities that exist in higher education?"

  • Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training

    The University of Utah's Physics & Astronomy EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Committee and Executive Committee have modified the "Departmental Retention, Promotion, and Tenure policy" to require candidates for promotion and tenure to "submit a statement of accomplishments for and commitment to enhancing equity, diversity, and inclusion."
