U Giving Day

Today is U Giving Day! We at UNP are reaching out to our partners for additional support of the work that we all do with the west side communities of Salt Lake City. Working together reciprocally we all increase individual and family capacity, education pathways, community wellbeing, and community-engaged scholarship. 

Hartland Partnership Center

The UNP Hartland Partnership Center, located at 1578 W 1700 S in Salt Lake City.

The piece of the UNP model that we’re focusing on today is our Hartland Education Pathways. The UNP Hartland Partnership Center is an educational hub and launching point where west side youth and adults can pursue their greatest potential. The goal is for more residents to access higher education and come back to their communities as professionals and leaders. UNP brings university and community groups into the space to build relationships and offer programs in academics, health, cultural arts, social development, professional skills, and leadership development.

On this U Giving Day, please consider supporting UNP’s Hartland Education Pathways. Your gift will be match, up to $5,000, by the Scott & Betsy Thorton Family Foundation. This will double the amount of your gift, regardless of whether it’s $5 or $500. 

Please visit our U Giving Day campaign page HERE to make a gift today! 

If you are staff or faculty with the University of Utah, giving can be even simpler. With a small gift withdrawn from each paycheck, you can sustain UNP with your ongoing support. Get a Payroll Deduction Enrollment Form HERE.

Together, we can all imagine new heights for west side communities!

In the 2018 anniversary issue of Community Voices, we shared how residents and their partners have worked for a decade and a half to improve lives and strengthen community in Salt Lake City’s west side neighborhoods. The mural pictured above speaks to the very real concern that residents may not be able to enjoy the benefits of their own efforts. …

Meet the Candidates – UNP Director Search

A few months ago we began the search process to find the next director for University Neighborhood Partners. A committee made up of various stakeholder groups was formed to identify an individual who embodies the skills and the dispositions that our staff, board, and community members saw as most critical for the person who will ultimately fulfill this role. Since that time a committee reviewed applications, interviewed a number of candidates, and selected three phenomenal individuals who will spend a day to present their vision and to interview with the staff, advisory board, partners, and community groups that represent UNP. We are very grateful to the search committee for their time and thoughtful effort in this process.

The final three candidates are listed below. Please review their resumes to learn more by clicking on their names:
