About

History

The dramatic account of SUU founders provides an example of fortitude for today’s modern university experience. In 1897, the newly organized Utah Legislature called for the hurried establishment of a teacher training school to provide for the region’s emerging pioneer settlement communities.

Education

With more than 140 majors, minors, certificates, and graduate degrees, SUU has the programs you need to get where you want to go. And if you aren’t sure where to focus your talents, then search for a program based on what you’re interested in and we can help build the perfect degree for you.

Research

The Office of Institutional Research & Assessment supports SUU’s mission fulfillment by providing data and data analysis to inform institutional and programmatic planning, decision-making, and assessment. In addition to meeting internal data needs, the Office of IR & Assessment also represents SUU to external stakeholders by responding to report and data requests from state, federal, and other external agencies. Our office coordinates and collaborates with other entities on campus to ensure data integrity.

A unique component to the SUU Library is the ability for students to reserve the study rooms located throughout the building- a great idea for group projects! You can reserve one of six group study rooms the same day, or in advance.

Student Life

Campus life

Southern Utah University’s campus offers a serene and peaceful backdrop to purposeful study and academic exploration. The 130-acre, tree-covered landscape is punctuated by an architectural blend of modern and historic buildings, 1.3 acres of flower beds, and a public art display that weaves campus together in story and metaphor. A safe, residential campus allows students to create lifelong friendships in conjunction with their academic endeavors.

Student clubs

SUU has over 120 clubs on campus. We have clubs for many different interests, making it extremely easy to get involved. If there is not a club that fits what you are looking for it is super quick to start a new one. You will need 5 students, a full or part-time faculty or staff advisor, and will need to fill out the Club Registration Form on T-Bird Connection.

I really like how small the classes are. You get to know the professor better and they can focus on you more since they have less students under them.

Something I really liked about my experience at Southern Utah University is how welcoming everybody is. Especially the international program (International Student Ambassadors) really helped me find my second home in America. Without them, I would have been lost in countless situations. The teachers are also amazing and because of the smaller classrooms you get to know...
