We are grateful to Julie Thomas for serving as interim director of OEO/AA these past few months. Thomas has worked tirelessly to lead the outstanding OEO/AA team through this transition in leadership.

Please join us in welcoming Hayashi to the University of Utah.
The Clear the Air Challenge is all about improving air quality in Utah by eliminating unnecessary vehicle trips. By participating in the Clear the Air Challenge, employers, employees and individuals can help by driving less and driving smarter. Seek out public transportation, trip-chain, bike, walk or carpool whenever possible to campus or any of your destinations, and then log those trips on the dashboard at travelwisetracker.com.
Cool prizes are available for participants, but more importantly, with clearer air, we’re all winners. Get involved and get your friends to participate.

After taking command of an Armored Cavalry Reconnaissance Platoon in the 1960s, Edwards led them in surveillance and security missions along the East-West German Border in the strategic Fulda Gap. This took place during the height of the Cold War and less than two months after John F. Kennedy was assassinated. After being honorably released from active duty, he commanded a tank company of the 81st Tank Battalion at Fort Douglas until honorably discharged.
His 30-year career in broadcast journalism began in Salt Lake City at KUTV. He then worked in Portland, Oregon, and Pittsburgh. He spent 15 years as news director at KTVX in Salt Lake City, and six years with the University of Utah Health Sciences Development Office as a director of major gifts and communications.
Edwards received a bachelor’s degree in communication and journalism from the University of Utah’s College of Humanities. He is serving his 14th year as the Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army for Utah and his 13th year as a member of the U’s Veterans Day committee.
