Beneficiary | Teaching Colleges at Public Universities


Formerly called Normal Schools, teaching colleges at Utah’s public universities are one of 12 beneficiaries of Utah’s trust lands. SITLA generates revenue from the 68,859 acres of land held in trust for the teaching colleges, and deposits the revenue into a Permanent Fund. Interest and dividends from this permanent trust, along with all non-land sale revenues, are divided and distributed among the colleges based on enrollment.

The teaching colleges use these funds to prepare their students for leadership and excellence within a diverse and changing educational community.
