Chris Hill

Just 37 years old when he was appointed as Utah's director of athletics, Chris Hill, Ph.D., has spent the last 26 years developing the school's athletics department into one of national prominence. He was instrumental in Utah's invitation to join the Pac-12 Conference in the summer of 2010.

sonia nietoThe College of Education would like to thank the J. George Jones, Jr. and Velma Rife Jones Memorial Fund for the 2015 Jones Lecture. Dr. Sonia Nieto was this year's guest lecturer presenting "Why They Teach Now: Teachers Stories of Struggle, Hope and the Future."

"Although for over a century our nation has advanced the 
ideal that a high-quality and excellent public education is the
 birth right of all children, our schools cannot fulfill this ambitious
 and noble purpose unless all of us—parents, policymakers, and 
the general public—commit ourselves to sustaining education as
 a public trust and a promise to future generations."

From "Why We Teach." New York: Teachers College Press, 2005.
