USU regional campuses growing

More and more people are participating in the offerings of Utah State University’s regional campuses and Vice President for Advancement Ross Peterson says this is part of the university’s mission as a land grant college.Peterson says someone can hold down a job and still take classes in Vernal or a single mother can enroll at the regional campus in Brigham City. In Vernal, he says, there are facilities that would knock your socks off.”I just think it makes the whole system better and really fulfills the land-grant mission,” Peterson said on KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday. “President Albrecht, the provost and others that are involved in this, we have a large, large student body out there. “Probably by 2020 we might have more USU Aggie students away from Logan than at Logan but we are the mother ship.”Peterson says there has been a wonderful growth in the regional campuses along with the programs now offered at the College of Eastern Utah and its new partnership with USU.
