A highly influential national educational magazine recently covered USTAR and researcher recruitment to Utah. Based in Washington, D.C., the Chronicle of Higher Education has more than 68,000 academic subscribers and has a total readership of more than 245,000. The Chronicle's Web site is seen by more than 1.7 million unique visitors a month.
In covering USTAR, the Chronicle was interested in:
- USTAR’s long term focus – a decades-long commitment by the State to technology-based economic development deploying the assets of higher education
- How USTAR exemplifies a thoughtful recruiting strategy of top researchers for the new era of limited resources
- How the business community has been key in launching and supporting USTAR
The writer spent more than three days in Utah, and interviewed – among others - University of Utah researchers Guido Gerig, John White, Massood Tabib-Azar, and Marc Porter.
