Utah Higher Education Staff Association

UHESA provides a means of association and communication between the Staff Associations of each institution of the Utah System of Higher Education. Membership in UHESA consists of representatives from each institution's Staff Association officers and all higher education staff. Our mission is to unify, train, educate, and cultivate higher education staff and their associations; to create a powerful voice for staff within the state of Utah; to instill a sense of pride in higher education staff; and to educate the citizens of Utah regarding the worth of Higher Education.

In addition to monthly meetings and quarterly conferences, UHESA organizes a Day at the Capitol each February for all higher education staff to speak with legislatures about the importance of higher education within the state system and its vital role as an economic engine for the state.
