Issue Background

Southern Utah University has continued to become a large part of the local economy and has been adding educational opportunities to the City and the Iron County region. SUU has also been expanding beyond a regional focus, with strong efforts to recruit students from not only all areas of Utah, but from the burgeoning Las Vegas area as well. Relations between the community and the University are excellent, and the concerns and aspirations of Cedar City and the University are generally aligned.

Potential Goals and Investments

  1. (from previous plan) Support a wide variety of educational opportunities throughout the City as a means of sustaining Cedar City’s community and economic development activities. Coordinate City efforts with Iron County School District, Southern Utah University, Southwest Applied Technology College, and other public and private schools, business resource centers, and the state.
