The University of Utah is embarking on an ambitious fundraising goal in hopes of bringing the athletic department closer to its Pac-12 comrades.
Invest in Excellence is a new website that's up and running and soliciting donations to help push the department toward their goals. Because Utah had the smallest operating budget for the 2010-11 athletic year in the conference, you can see why this drive is imperative to the viability and sustainability of our athletic department.
