Utah Women 20/20: Women University And College Presidents On Monday's Access Utah

2020.jpg

This is a unique moment for Utah. Five colleges and universities in the state now have women presidents, several for the first time. These institutions include Utah State University, University of Utah, Utah Valley University, Salt Lake Community College, and Westminster College. As a part of our UPR Original Series Utah Women 20/20, we’ll talk with three of those presidents on Monday’s Access Utah. We’ll explore what this means for Utah and for these universities and colleges. Our guests will include USU President Noelle E. Cockett, UVU President Astrid S. Tuminez, and SLCC President Deneece G. Huftalin.

Support for Utah Women 20/20 is provided in part by our members and:

The Utah Women’s Giving Circle, a grassroots community with everyday philanthropists raising the questions and raising the funds to empower Utah women and girls. Information available here.

And Utah State University’s Center for Women and Gender, providing a professional and social climate to enhance opportunities through learning, discovery, and engagement. Information available here.
