Utah Department of Cultural and Community Engagement

Utah Department of Cultural and Community Engagement Website

The Utah Department of Cultural and Community Engagement (formerly Utah Department of Heritage and Arts) aligns programmatic efforts to activate the social and civic engagement needed to cultivate creativity, reinforce a sense of belonging, and encourage collaboration. Each of the seven divisions' work positively impacts individuals, communities, and ultimately the intangible heart of the state.

In 1897, public-spirited Utahns organized the Utah State Historical Society in order to expand public understanding of Utah's past. Today, the Utah Division of State History administers the society and as part of its statutory obligations, publishes the Utah Historical Quarterly, which has collected and preserved Utah's unique history since 1928.

The division also collects materials related to the history of Utah, assists communities, agencies, building owners, and consultants with state and federal processes regarding archaeological and historical resources, administers the ancient human remains program, makes historical resources available in a specialized research library, offers extensive online resources and grants, and assists in public policy and the promotion of Utah's rich history.
