Founders Day gala


The Alumni Association celebrated the 1850 founding of the University of Utah on Feb. 26, 2019, with hundreds and hundreds of members of the university community–staff, faculty, alumni and community partners. Each year’s gala recognizes distinguished alumni and honorary alumni who have excelled professionally, served the local and national communities and supported the university in its mission. The annual distinguished and honorary alumni awards, along with honorary degrees, are the highest honors awarded by the U.

The banquet is a wonderful way to celebrate and show support for individuals who have raised the profile of the university through their accomplishments and generosity.
