The University of Utah

Union EDI Initiatives

The Union values diversity and promotes a safe and welcoming atmosphere where all students are inspired to realize their potential. The Union is continually working on equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives, and this web page is where we will share in-progress, future, and completed initiatives.

In-progress

Braille Business Cards

To be more inclusive for our visually impaired guests, the Union is working on adding braile to its business cards.

Adding Pronouns to Email Signatures

Pronouns are one of the ways we portray our identities. To be more inclusive our staff will share our preferred pronouns in our email signatures.

Staff EDI Trainings

Union Staff will take a 60 minute course through the University of Utah entitled Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion for the Workplace.

Staff will also watch and reflect on a University of Utah forum discussion entitled, A Call for Racial Healing.

EDI Advertising for Student Affairs

The Union will offer advertising resources to other Student Affairs departments in an effort to promote and expand EDI initiatives across the Student Affairs Division.

Adding EDI Initiatives to the Union Website

The Union will add and maintain a section of the Union website with content that supports EDI initiatives. This section will include what the department is working on as well as additional resources available to students across campus.
