Tom Loveridge Staff Scholarship

As both an undergraduate and graduate student then Instructor and Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action and finally an Associate Vice President of Human Resources, Tom was a fierce supporter of University of Utah staff and helped to start the Staff Council, staying close as an ex-officio Staff Council member throughout his career.

To honor his service and dedication to the University of Utah, the University of Utah Staff Council has set up a memorial scholarship in his name.
