Mission Statement

Utah Association for Gifted Children advocates for the diverse population of gifted children in the State of Utah. We advance the understanding of the academic and social/emotional needs of gifted children among community leaders, policy makers, educators and parents. We promote the development of quality services to provide educational opportunities for gifted students. We increase the capacity of educators and parents to be agents of change in their schools and communities and in the lives of gifted children.

Membership benefits include an online newsletter published regularly reporting recent events and developments in the field of gifted education, an annual conference registration discount, a voice at the state capitol through a legislative liaison and updates on legislation affecting gifted education, an opportunity to join a UAGC affiliate in your local area, information about UAGC scholarships and awards, and an opportunity to participate on a UAGC Board Committee.
