David Eccles Week honors the school value of excellence

The fourth and final Eccles School value honored during David Eccles Week is Excellence.

Excellence is a value our school’s namesake thoroughly embodied. David Eccles wasn’t content to be successful and simply do a good job. He was exceptionally dedicated, received accolades and respect from his peers and amassed great wealth, both personally and professionally.

He constantly strived for excellence in every endeavor he undertook — ensuring his businesses, civic service and time with family were the best they possibly could be.

Like our namesake, the Eccles School community strives for excellence.

Our students consistently perform in the top tiers in competitions throughout the nation, earn the respect of employers as they carry out the duties of their internships and jobs and impress with insight and understanding in the classroom.

Our faculty embraces excellence in all they do — from cutting-edge research to conducting engaging, informative classes.

Our staff creates an environment for excellence by delivering top-notch customer service to our students, helping them navigate the business world from the classroom to the boardroom.

From academic achievement to community service and workplace accomplishment, excellence is bound to the Eccles Experience.

Find out more about the excellent extracurricular opportunities available to students during Party on the Plaza from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees can Dunk a Dean, learn more about our presidential candidates, and meet University of Utah mascot Swoop.
