About Our College

The institution began as St. George Stake Academy, founded in 1911 by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Later it became a state school of the Utah System of Higher Education.[5] Until 2000, it was a two-year junior college named Dixie College. In 2000 the institution was renamed Dixie State College. In February 2013 the school officially became Dixie State University.[5] In November 2021, after controversy over the use of the term "Dixie" in the school's name, the state legislature approved the bill that allowed the school to become Utah Tech University. The school started using the name in May 2022, with full usage in July of the same year.[6]
