About Utah State University - Blanding
About USU Blanding
More Degrees than Ever BeforeUtah State University was founded as Utah's land-grant university and as such the mission is to provide higher education throughout Utah. Blanding Campus adds to this mission by providing traditional and technical education to students throughout southeastern Utah.
Founded in 1977, the Utah State University Blanding Campus opens doors for residents in Utah's remote southeast corner, including Native Americans in the Four-Corner region. It is a college campus small enough to keep students from getting lost in the crowd but with connections large enough to offer them endless possibilities. It is a stepping stone from high school to college and on to a successful career. In addition, nearly 70% of USU Blanding students are Native American.
The Blanding campus also supports many learning centers in the Four-Corners area providing educational access to dozens of sites in a service region of more than 40,000 square miles, half of which are in tribal lands
The Blanding Campus is located approximately 300 miles southeast of Salt Lake City
