A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Utah State University, Weber State University, and the University of Utah formed a STARS review cooperative in 2020. This year, reviewers from the University of Utah and Weber State University reviewed USU's STARS report using the template provided by AASHE.

The reviewers received the completed report and made comments. A representative from USU revised the report and responded to comments. Then, reviewers made a second review, and a representative from USU revised and responded to feedback. All suggested revisions were addressed in the process.
