2017 Graduation Welcomes First Wave of UAC Students
This spring, the first group of students from the University of Utah Asia Campus (UAC)
graduated. The UAC began developing an abroad campus in 2014 as a part of the Incheon
Global Campus which has been dubbed as the “best global education hub in Northeast
Asia.” The organization also includes Belgium’s Ghent University, George Mason University,
State University of New York, Stony Brook, and hosts about 10,000 students from all
over the globe.
The UAC parallels many of the University of Utah’s main campus assets, including academic advising, peer mentors, resident advisors, on-campus jobs, and student mental health counseling which focuses on helping study abroad students adjust to life in a new setting and balancing work, life, and school.
