Part of the mission of the University of Utah is to reach out to first-generation, low-income and underrepresented populations. A broad student body enriches the education experience and success of all the members of the University community--both student and teacher--as well as enhancing the U's excellence as a university. Below are a listing of resources and programs in place to assist in achieving that goal:
Connecting U Day
Each year, we host special, day-long events for prospective students, their families, and community members called "Connecting U Days". Each is a day full of break-out sessions with information about applying to the U, facts about financial aid & scholarships, presentations from organizations and colleges from across campus, details on student life, and tours of housing and the Marriott Library. This year, in additional to the regular Connecting U Days events, we are hosting one special event specifically for underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation populations. Join us for a day of learning, as well as a celebration of diversity.
