Crimson Laureate SocietyCrimson Laureate Society

The Crimson Laureate Society was established in May 2017. The charter of the Society is to build a community of alumni and friends that are passionate about the advancement of scientific research and education at the University of Utah. 

The physical sciences, life sciences, and mathematics have been the fundamental building blocks for the technological and social leaps of the past century. Now, science is needed more than ever to improve lives and to provide innovative solutions for the global challenges we face.

From the microscopic to the cosmic, research in the College of Science supports transformative discoveries in drug development, clean energy, data science, climate change, and astronomy. At the same time, we teach fundamental science to the next generation of scientists, engineers, doctors, and more.

As a Crimson Laureate Society member, you can be an advocate for science in your community, making your voice heard as we work with legislators to create new science programs in Utah. You’ll gain VIP access to events that present cutting-edge research from the U and around the world, while your philanthropic contributions will support science outreach, scholarships, faculty support, and research at the U.

I ask you to support the promotion and further advancement of science at the University of Utah by joining the Crimson Laureate Society. I hope you will join us in ensuring that science continues to drive creativity, critical thinking, and positive change for everyone in our society.
