LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH in Utah
Cheney, Jean, Humanities
In 1985, Utah Technical College had an enrollment of a few thousand students and general education courses that students took to get out of the way. Today, the school has become Utah Valley University, one of the largest public institutions of higher education in the state, offering close to sixty bachelor's degree programs and three master's degree programs, and topping 30,000 in enrollment last year. The philosophy department alone has fourteen full-time faculty members. Robust population growth - Utah is the second fastest growing state in the nation - has been the major reason for this rapid evolution, but there has been another factor, a quietly changing campus culture.
