Our Mission

The University of Utah has tremendous capacity to leverage education and training; research and scholarship; and engagement and outreach, to address local, national, and global challenges that disproportionately impact disadvantaged communities. 

This initiative, led by Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Dan Reed, is meant to shift the University of Utah’s “business” model, looking both internally and externally to disrupt barriers between disciplines and social groups, reward impactful collaborations, and establish the university as an indispensable community partner in ambitious and visionary programs that move us continuously toward a more fair and equitable society.
