Jordan Kirby started this petition to Dixie State University and

June 15th, The Dixie State University Name Recommendation Committee voted 11-3 in favor of renaming the university, Utah Polytechnic State University. It has been very apparent through student interactions and on the Dixie State official Instagram that this name is not liked or accepted.

Dixie State University is a vital part of the Saint George community and is a symbol of the growth and accomplishment for the area. Throughout the name change process, the committee and university have completely neglected the community and their students. Many great options were given in a survey of the name change to community members, students and alumni and should be considered instead for the future name of Dixie State University.

As students we feel unheard, disrespected and that the institution wants to make the decision without any input from us. As a community, we ask for something that will represent Southern Utah and that we can be proud of.

Dixie State University deserves something better than UPSU!!
