ASUU Child Care
ASUU Child Care Program is now enrolling for summer semester 2015.

Sign your children up for a fun summer on campus (ages 6 weeks to 7 years).

The ASUU Child Care Program’s mission is to provide access to high quality, affordable
child care for student families at the University of Utah.


The ASUU Child Care Program is operated within the Student Affairs Division of the University of Utah. Children of university students have priority placement and subsidized fee options at the center. At least one student parent must be attending the university and be registered for a minimum of six credit hours for priority student placement. Children of university students will continue to be eligible as long as one parent maintains a registered student status. A weighted criteria scale based on student demographics is used to determine final enrollment.

While University faculty, staff, post doctorates and visiting scholars are not eligible for subsidized care, we welcome their participation in our program, if student slots are unfilled.

The program provides:
– Part-time hours and partial week scheduling
– Subsidized fees
– NAEYC accredited and state licensed
– Developmental programming for children 6 weeks through 7 years of age
– On-campus fields trips daily for children 5-7 years during summer semester

Summer hours are Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Please visit for enrollment information or call the center at 801-585-7393.


Thirty students, $10,000 and two minutes to win it. In honor of the oratorical skills of former Utah Congressman Wayne Owens, the Hinckley Institute of Politics and the Associated Students of the University of Utah on April 15 will host the finale of a highly anticipated speech contest called HIP Talks.

Over the last month, over 200 students from every major and discipline on campus have thrown their hats in the ring in hopes of qualifying for the fiercely competitive top 30 spots. The finals take place at 5 p.m. at the University of Utah Union Ballroom. The event is free and open to the public.

The rules are simple: The speeches must be two minutes in length but can be given on any subject. The finalists’ topics vary widely including an economics doctoral candidate’s proposal to eat your cake and have it too, a poli-sci major’s experiences growing up in a polygamist family and a biomedical engineering major’s push for female pocket equality.

During the finals, a celebrity judge panel will select a winner for each of the following categories:

·       Grand Prize—$5,000
·       Humorous—$1,000
·       Compelling—$1,000
·       Informative—$1,000
·       Original— $1,000
·       Audience Favorite—$1,000

The Eccles School’s Sorenson Center for Discovery & Innovation is partnering with Chung-ang University to create a digital gaming and engagement research and development center at the U campus in Songdo, South Korea. The center will also bring its gaming expertise to the game-loving culture of South Korea by creating the first-ever joint international MBA and Master of Entertainment Arts and Engineering degree.

Chung-ang University led a delegation of Korean VIPs, including Dr. Jin-yee Shin, a member of the South Korean National Assembly, to participate in this year’s Games4Health Challenge, where students from two Korean universities participated with others students from around the world. Dr. Youngjeen Choe, vice president of international affairs at Chung-Ang University, led this delegation in their visit to the U campus to sign an agreement with U President David W. Pershing to create the gaming center in South Korea.

The center will teach graduate courses on digital gaming from both the technical and business perspectives, including game development and innovative gaming business model strategies. It will also offer executive education courses in business, innovation and entrepreneurship that focus heavily on digital engagement and digital business model innovations.
