One U Thriving


One U Thriving is the platform by which Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) communicates the vision of the University for equity, diversity, and inclusion (and belonging) and where we will ensure students, faculty, trainees, and staff feel a sense of belonging and have a voice to help bring about racial healing and transformation, respond to racist and bias incidents and help to shape our journey as we achieve the goal of an anti-racist, diverse, inclusive, accessible, and equitable campus.

One U Thriving Committees


Building upon President Watkins’ vision for the future of One U, and united in serving the people of Utah and the nation as a flagship institution at the forefront of scientific research and innovation, EDI launched One U Thriving as a synergistic approach in developing methods to achieve inclusion and equity on throughout the University.
