U Rising

What does it take for a woman to rise and achieve career success? For President Watkins, mentors were key. President Watkins will share the story of her own career trajectory, how mentors made a difference in her life and why it is important to give and receive guidance.

Dr. Ruth V. Watkins, the 16th president of the University of Utah, is guiding the state’s flagship institution to unprecedented heights. A little over one year into Watkins’ presidency, the university was selected as a new member

of the Association of American Universities—an invitation-only, prestigious group of 65 leading research institutions marked by excellence in academic expertise and research impact, student success, and securing resources in support of core missions. President Watkins’ signature initiatives include degree completion, innovative student funding models, strong partnerships with community stakeholders, uniting the campus as One U to drive innovation in research, education, and operational efficiency, and addressing grand societal challenges such as mental health and interpersonal violence.

In recognition of the complexity and change experienced by 20th century women in Utah and elsewhere, the mission of the Aileen H. Clyde 20th Century Women’s Legacy Archive is to document and preserve the history of women whose lives and work helped create social and cultural change.

On December 24th, 2019 we lost the founder of this archive, Aileen H. Clyde. Read about her life here.
