Our Mission

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.

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. 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.

Bring a Friend to Finish

Return, Learn, and Earn


Join UHESA in our service initiative; “Bring a Friend to Finish- Return, Learn, and Earn”. Higher Ed staff in Utah are uniting to help reach the governor’s goal that 66% of Utah’s population will have some type of degree or certificate by 2020. Higher Ed staff facilitate degree completion every day. From custodial staff to enrollment specialists, we know the connections students need to succeed. We are talking to our friends and we invite you to join us!
