Inside Research at Utah State University

At Utah State University’s Sunrise Sessions, faculty and students share their research with community members and business leaders from the Wasatch Front. Held quarterly in downtown Salt Lake City, these early-morning presentations detail how USU research addresses pressing issues that impact Utah’s citizens and its future.

All are invited to attend these events at no charge thanks to generous sponsorship by Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Each session is free and open to the public.
