About the U

The University of Utah, located in Salt Lake City in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, is the flagship institution of higher learning in Utah. Founded in 1850, it serves over 31,000 students from across the U.S. and the world. With over 72 major subjects at the undergraduate level and more than 90 major fields of study at the graduate level, including law and medicine, the university prepares students to live and compete in the global workplace. Known for its proximity to seven world-class ski resorts within 40 minutes of campus, the U encourages an active, holistic lifestyle, innovation and collaborative thinking to engage students, faculty, and business leaders.

 

Technology and Commercialization

The University of Utah ranks among the top in the country for creating start-up companies from university research, according to a ranking by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM). Click here for more information.

 

Forbes magazine’s recent ranking of the “Best States for Business” pointed to “an educated labor force” as a big reason Utah came in at number one. The U supplies many of the employees for companies that keep expanding their operations in Utah, such as Goldman Sachs, Adobe, Omniture, Oracle, Ebay, and many others.

 

Sustainability

The University of Utah is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a top school for green power purchasing. Offsetting its energy use by purchasing renewable energy credits is just one way the University of Utah is working to lead by example in energy efficiency and renewable power. The U has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for reducing energy use. Thus far the university has seven buildings on campus with solar panels. The campus has a total of 766 kilowatts of solar panels actively generating electricity, and more systems are planned for the future.

 

Health care

University of Utah Health Care has ranked first in the nation for six years in a row in the University HealthSystem Consortium's (UHC) Bernard A. Birnbaum, M.D., Quality Leadership Award. The award signifies a top-10 finish in UHC's prestigious quality and safety rankings, a comparison of teaching hospitals based on quality measures, patient safety and satisfaction indictors, mortality rates and readmissions.
