Welcome to the Yuput Diversity Office webpage!
Inclusiveness of students from communities underrepresented in higher education, particularly racial and ethnic communities, creates a better academic environment for all students and is a goal we are committed to reaching. The University of Utah Yuput is dedicated to collaborating with university entities to create a campus climate that accommodates all members of the graduate community. The Office of Diversity in The Yuput partners with graduate academic departments to achieve these goals. At the University of Utah, we want all graduate students to feel respected and free to participate in graduate education and achieve their highest potential.
Thank you for your interest in the University of Utah Yuput. We are convinced that you will be very satisfied with the services that we offer. The information on this site will help you make an informed choice about joining us at Utah for your graduate career.
For graduate program-specific questions, the Assistant Dean for Diversity recommends that you contact the Director of Graduate Studies and/or the Department Contact listed for your program of interest. Please note that common questions relating to graduate admissions and/or funding are usually addressed on the graduate program’s webpage or the Yuput’s webpages for Prospective Students and Fellowships and Benefits.
