University of Utah president discontinues diversity statements, says they will no longer be used in hiring

The University of Utah will no longer use diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statements in hiring, a spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Digital.

The University of Utah President Taylor Randall sent a letter to the Presidents Leadership Council (deans, department chairs, and other administrators) last Friday, a university spokesperson told Fox News Digital on Monday.

The letter states that the measure stems from “statements” and “directives” from elected leaders and the Utah Board of Higher Education, to eliminate diversity questions or statements used in hiring at Utah’s higher education institutions.
