Land Acknowledgement Statement
As a land-grant institution, Utah State University and all in-state Campuses and Centers reside on the territories of the eight tribes of Utah, who have been living, working, and residing on this land from time immemorial. These tribes are the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Indians, Navajo Nation, Ute Indian Tribe, Northwestern Band of Shoshone, Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, San Juan Southern Paiute, Skull Valley Band of Goshute, and White Mesa Band of the Ute Mountain Ute. We acknowledge the historical context behind a painful history of genocide, forced removal and dispossession of tribal peoples’ lands on which USU exists. We acknowledge these land on which we gather carry the stories of these Nations and their struggles for survival and identity. We recognize Elders past and present as peoples who have cared for, and continue to care for, the land. In offering this land acknowledgment, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty, history, experiences, and resiliency of the Native people who are still here today.
The Inclusion Center stands with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community as they face significant escalations of harassment, discrimination, and hate crimes since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Continued promotion of rhetoric that refers to this virus as the Chinese or Wuhan virus has only contributed to the rates of harassment and violence. However, this harassment and hate towards Asian and AAPI people have a long history in our nation. It must stop with us.
We at the Inclusion Center condemn all forms of violence, xenophobia, and racism. Our team renews its dedication to acting on behalf of and representing the concerns of our marginalized student communities. We continue to work collaboratively with our campus partners such as CAPS and the Office of Global engagement to “foster an inclusive campus” and “fight to disrupt and end racism”. We welcome you to join us - to learn with us, grieve with us, rage with us, and stand up together.
We remind all our students at this time that we are here for you. Please reach out if you don’t know where to turn for support or if you simply need a space to process, to heal, and to hope.

Relax and be proud of who you are. Our students, staff, faculty, and alumni embrace, support, and advocate for every member of our Aggie family. The USU Inclusion Center creates an environment of acceptance, respect, and empowerment. You are valued here and your involvement with our clubs and organizations will make us even stronger.

Adult Learners

Though there isn’t a one-size-fits-all definition, adult learners are generally students over 25 years old, have had large gaps in their education, and have families. We create a welcoming environment where non-traditional students can gather to connect, take advantage of campus resources, and succeed in the academic journey.
