Attracting top students and faculty requires accommodating two needs: alignment of academic interests and providing competitive financial incentives. Our vision is to distinguish Utah State University on the basis of our academic strengths, making USU an institution of choice by future students and faculty.
As builders of our tradition, we hope you value the academic training and inspiration you received at USU, and we urge you to support our campaign effort. Please review the list of opportunities for securing our tradition below and contact us with your interests. No contribution is too small; we are grateful for every gift we receive. Your partnership is the key to our success.
