Dear Dean,

Did you know that Utah was once the third-highest state in America for the percent of adults with a bachelor's degree? In recent decades, we've fallen below the national average for our younger population, but there are signs we're turning the corner and improving.  


In less than two weeks, you have the opportunity to learn more about the connections of higher education to Utah's economic prosperity by attending Utah Foundation's annual meeting. We've assembled a fantastic group of experts to discuss Utah's current efforts, challenges and how we can meet aggressive goals for a well-educated workforce. 


Not only do we have a great lineup of speakers, but we're also providing ample opportunities for your questions and your input on this crucial issue.
