The University of Utah will officially launch the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute on Sept. 2.
An initiative of the David Eccles School of Business, the new institute aims to support informed decision-making by developing and sharing economic, demographic and public policy research. In addition, the institute serves as a prestigious gathering place for thought leadership.
Named in honor of businessman, philanthropist and University of Utah alum Kem Gardner, the institute builds upon his legacy of hard work and his great love for Utah. Mr. Gardner currently serves as chairman of The Gardner Company, a private commercial real estate company. During his 38 years in business, Gardner and his partners have been involved in developing more than 33 million square feet of commercial real estate. Not satisfied with business alone, Gardner devotes a significant amount of time toward the betterment of Utah.
