Leaders speak out on how UETN serves education and healthcare

Technology infrastructure is critical to the success of higher education. UETN plays an important role supporting the network infrastructure of the state’s colleges and universities. Institutions within the Utah System of Higher Education are large enterprises serving over 170,000 students a year. The quality of those institutions depends on a solid physical and technological infrastructure–not just in instruction, but also research, campus life, public safety and administration. The Utah System of Higher Education values its partnership with UETN in providing this critical support. David L. Buhler
Commissioner of Higher Education

Our connection to UETN is critical to improving access to care in support of the health and well-being of people who live in and visit Sanpete County and central Utah. UETN’s secure broadband infrastructure links our patients and providers while saving money and improving lives. We rely on UETN’s expertise to provide technical support, resources, and consultation with multiple specialists. UETN is a key asset in Gunnison Valley Hospital’s ability to offer cutting-edge care in central Utah. Mark Dalley
Administrator, Gunnison Valley Hospital

UETN’s statewide broadband, applications and resources are essential to our public schools, libraries, and higher education institutions. They help us deliver high quality instruction and conduct assessment over Utah’s vast distances. The Network also provides curriculum resources and the flexibility to deliver services that meet the individual needs of students, teachers and leaders as we seek to assure literacy and numeracy for all Utah children. Dr. Sydnee Dickson
State Superintendent of Public Instruction

The Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN) is a longstanding and essential partner to the Utah State Library (USL) and to public libraries all across Utah. Their services ensure that USL can fulfill its mission to improve the quality of public libraries, especially smaller ones, across the state. This partnership has been a crucial catalyst for three major initiatives benefiting Utah’s public libraries: first, Utah’s Online Library with in-depth educational resources; second, broadband internet for most of Utah’s public libraries; and third, E-Rate assistance that provides broadband access to libraries at substantial savings.Donna Jones Morris
State Librarian, Director, Utah State Library Division/Department of Heritage and Arts

UETN is a key partner with the Utah College of Applied Technology and helps our colleges serve secondary and adult students to meet employer needs for technically skilled workers. The opportunity for students and faculty to save costs through the various services UETN provides is a significant contribution to the education of Utahns throughout our state.Dr. David R. Woolstenhulme
Commissioner of Technical Education, Utah College of Applied Technology
