The University of Utah is a Carnegie RU/VH Research University and Utah’s flagship university. The University is a member of the Association of American Universities and the PAC-12. The University is located in beautiful Salt Lake City, which offers an outstanding quality of life in a major metropolitan area of 1.5 million residents, nestled in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. Utah’s great outdoors are close by, offering activities from world class skiing, hiking, and mountain biking in the spectacular surrounding canyons. The city is vibrant and cosmopolitan with theater, the arts, sports, and nightlife. The area has received international recognition for its light rail system, downtown, library system, and increasing diversity. Salt Lake City is home to sizable Latinx and immigrant populations (21.5% and 11.5% of residents, respectively). More than a third of Utah's ethnic/racial minorities are children or youth under the age of 18 years, and the Salt Lake City School District is now a majority minority district, with one in five Salt Lake County residents speaking a language besides English at home. The International Rescue Committee, headquartered in Salt Lake, is one of eight national resettlement committees committed to helping people with refugee status thrive in the United States. Per capita, Salt Lake City has the 11th largest LGBTQ population in the US and, among large US cities, has the highest percentage of same-sex couples (26 percent) raising children.
