Transform. Empower. Unexpected.
What is a truly transformative educational experience? How does the U empower students to excel both in school and after graduation? What elements must come together to create those unexpected moments of clarity and discovery we hope every student will experience in the classroom?
At the Office of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Utah we’ve dedicated the past year to searching for the answers and solutions to these questions. We’ve launched a campaign to make sure that every student attending the U has a transformative undergraduate experience.
The result is The New U Student Experience. Capitalizing on the many great academic programs and curricula that already exist while implementing new innovative initiatives, The New U Student Experience offers a holisitic approach to education, a new hands-on, engaging, and collaborative way for students to discover themselves, make connections with others, plan for their futures, and make a positive impact on the world around them.
Our work is to focus the campus on student success, implementing new ideas, revitalizing existing ones, and providing new and engaging programs so each student at the U experiences:
- Seamless navigation through the system
- Support for student success
- Encouragement to be global citizens
- Integration of knowledge
- Community engagement and connections
- Respect for diversity
- Planning to have an impact
