The San Juan Campus was started in 1976 under the direction of a citizens' group who sought to bring an institution of higher education to San Juan County residents. Through the affiliation of the College of Eastern Utah in Price, classes were offered at the San Juan Campus in September of 1976. In October of 1977, the Utah State Board of Regents recognized the San Juan Campus as an administrative unit of the College of Eastern Utah. The San Juan Campus was included in CEU's accreditation in October of 1981.
In carrying out the mission of the college, CEU-San Juan Campus recognizes the uniqueness of the area by making special efforts to reach non-traditional and minority students thought specialized courses, programs, counseling and advisement.
USU Eastern Merger
July 1, 2010 was a significant milestone in higher education in the state of Utah. Two notable institutions were formally brought together with the creation of Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah. Defined by the legislature as a “comprehensive regional college,” the union of Utah State University and the College of Eastern Utah offers advantages to both institutions—and also for all prospective students.
Merging two historical institutions that each has had its own separate identities, traditions, cultures processes and procedures into one unified institution is no small task. There are numerous variables and challenges. Nevertheless, great anticipation and excitement has emerged from this new union as a result of combining strengths and resources. The future is bright for students in eastern Utah and for USU students statewide as a result of this unique union.
