Group: Higher Education - Utah Education Network

Agency: Utah Education Network

Function

The Utah Education Network (UEN), a partnership of Utah's public and higher education institutions, delivers distance learning educational services statewide. It operates the public television station, KUEN-9; works closely with partner station KUED-7; provides closed circuit two-way video services through EDNET; and connects state institutions to each other and the Internet. Its mission is to 'provide the citizens of Utah access to the highest quality, most effective instructional experiences, administrative support services, library services, student services, and teacher resources regardless of location or time."

Statutory Authority

Utah Code Annotated 53B-17 establishes UEN and assigns its responsibilities.

  • UCA 53B-17-102 requires UEN to install, maintain, and operate EdNet videoconferencing sites as well as UtahLink data connections at higher education institutions and public schools throughout Utah.
  • UCA 53B-17-102 requires the Legislature to provide appropriation for EdNet sites at public schools, and UtahLink connections to public and higher education institutions.
  • UCA 53B-17-104 directs UEN to coordinate telecommunications activities in public and higher education schools, including the operation of public radio and television and use of satellite telecommunications.

Funding Detail

In the past, UEN has had as many as four line-items, with earmarked funds going to UEN itself, as well as to the University of Utah, Utah State University, and the College of Eastern Utah through UEN. During the past four years, the Legislature has streamlined these appropriations so that funds go directly to the recipient. UEN continues to coordinate the activities as directed by law.
