UVSC Mormon Studies Program Wins Startup Grant

OREM, UTAH -- Eugene England, writer-in-residence at Utah Valley State College, has received a $25,000 grant to help establish an LDS cultural studies program at UVSC. England, who received the grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, hopes to establish a full-fledged religious-studies approach to LDS culture. Mormons need to study their own culture in order to understand it better, England said.

The program is intended to provide a neutral atmosphere for the study of Mormon culture and other topics separate from religion, but has not yet been outlined or approved by the UVSC President Kerry D. Romesburg. Romesburg said the program needs to be carefully analyzed to make sure that no one will be offended or attacked.
