Welcome to Utah SSN

About the chapter

Utah SSN brings together scholars from colleges and universities across Utah, including the state’s three research universities: the University of Utah, Utah State University, and Brigham Young University. As the first SSN chapter to be established in the mountain west, Utah SSN is uniquely suited to address issues of importance to the region, including immigration, energy policy, air and water quality, the environment and public lands, and health care.
