Accomplishments

This spring, three UVU Comm students were accepted to present papers at Texas A&M's Communicating Diversity conference. Each had amazing submissions! 
 
In fact, Jorge Garcia was awarded the Top Undergraduate Paper Award for his essay and presentation entitled "Opportunity: Academic Life as a Mexican Immigrant in Utah" which looked at the intersection of racism, privilege, and colonization through the eyes of a first-generation Mexican immigrant.

Over four days they analyzed and discussed social and natural environments while hiking, laughing, and taking in the beautiful scenery.
