Engagement and Outreach
At University of Utah Health, we believe that community engagement is the foundation of building a vibrant and thriving society. As part of the University for Utah, the students and faculty who make up our six schools and colleges put that commitment into action. Working with residents and community leaders to identify priorities, our Colleges of Health, Nursing, and Pharmacy, along with our Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and the Eccles Health Sciences Library, put these beliefs into action through service, partnerships, and hyperlocal connections to and engagement with our communities.
