The Sum of US

The Sum of Us

From the Dean's desk At the University of Utah, our core commitment to student success isn't just a motto; it's a lived experience, a promise, and a legacy we uphold every day.

I address you not merely as an educator with twenty years under my belt, but as a living example of the transformative power of higher education. As a native of the rural American South, raised in a working-class family, shaped by its resilience, and seeing the world through the lens of a first-generation student—my story, much like many of yours, is one of dreams, determination, and the yearning to rise above one's circumstances. And, then, pay that success forward to the next generation of students.
