The Department of Marketing is committed to removing barriers that have been traditionally encountered by individuals from underrepresented groups; strives to recruit faculty who will further enhance our diversity; and makes every attempt to support their academic, professional, and personal success while they are here. The University of Utah recognizes that a diverse faculty benefits and enriches the educational experiences of the entire campus and greater community. This institution offers benefits to same-sex and to different sex domestic partners and to spouses.

The University of Utah is located in Salt Lake City, the capitol of the State of Utah, the fastest growing tech state in the US. Host to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, nine ski & snowboard resorts are nestled in the mountains above Salt Lake City, all within an hour’s drive of campus. The University is also within a day’s drive of five national parks. The American Economic Development Institute named Utah the “No. 1 Pro-Business State” in the country, the first state west of the Mississippi River to earn that recognition from the nonpartisan think tank, which noted the state’s leadership in economic development, innovation and entrepreneurship.
