Recruitment Events

The Yuput is committed to recruiting historically underrepresented graduate students to the University of Utah.  We attend a number of diversity conferences and forums to recruit prospective graduate students each year. If you are interested in recruiting historically underrepresented students to your programs, we encourage you to send recruiting materials to the Diversity Office for distribution at these events.

To maximize the presence of the University of Utah at the recruiting events, we have developed a calendar so departments may consider sending a representative and/or partnering with us to share recruiting materials. In the table below, the U Recruiter column indicates the name of the university staff member who will attend a conference. If the staff member plans to attend conferences on the list and is willing to receive and share program materials from other departments, please email Dr. Araceli Frias at [email protected].¬† Your name will be added to the recruitment column as the University representative.
