University of Utah Health strongly supports faculty who are working to balance family wellness with scholarly and professional obligations. With initial funding from the Castleton Family and donations from U of U Health leaders, funds are available to individual faculty members to offset the costs associated with dependent care (e.g., child, ill/disabled partner, or elder care) expenses while traveling to attend professional meetings, conferences, workshops, study sections, and other professional development offerings away from home.
The College of Health is among the largest of the colleges and schools at the University of Utah with 2500 undergraduate students, and 600 graduate students. The college offers 18 BA/BS degree emphases, 16 master’s degree programs, three clinical doctorates, and five PhD programs. This combination of graduate degrees, professional programs, and undergraduate majors uniquely positions the College of Health to contribute to the clinical and research missions of the University and state communities by implementing cutting-edge, high impact educational practices on campus.
