Asia Campus Turns Five

Thirteen students. That was the size of the first cohort at the University of Utah Asia Campus when it opened five years ago in Incheon, Korea. But the chance to enroll in some of the same courses and earn the same degree as any student on the Salt Lake campus has since attracted hundreds of eager learners. And now more than 330 students—including 39 from the U.S.—are enrolled in five undergraduate and two graduate programs. The world is smaller than ever, and the U has an obligation to help students think on a global scale, says Chris Ireland, interim chief global officer. “We’re a pioneer state. That culture of exploration and innovation is woven into who the University of Utah is. And thinking globally is a part of that pioneer spirit.”
