From its founding in 1897, Southern Utah University
has evolved from a teacher training institution to Utah’s designated liberal arts and sciences university. SUU has always placed students first by fostering small, personalized classes led by supportive professors who are some of the nation's top scholars in their fields of study.
True to the University's academic core vision, SUU faculty, staff and administrators enable students to honor thought in all its finest forms, achieve excellence in their chosen field, and create positive change in the world. People throughout the state look to the University for major academic specialties, economic and business development opportunities and training, distinguished cultural programs, athletic activities, and regional archives.
Cedar City, Utah is surrounded by some of the most acclaimed national parks and outdoor recreation opportunities in the United States.
