The Agency
The foundation of the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration is to serve as fiduciary of Utah’s 3.4 million acres of trust lands. Unlike public lands that are held in public domain, trust lands are parcels of land held in trust to support 12 state institutions, but primarily the K-12 public education system. Trust Lands Administration is constitutionally mandated to generate revenue from trust lands to build and grow permanent endowments for these institutions, which were designated by Congress in 1894. Utah’s public school system is the largest beneficiary, holding 96% of all Utah trust lands. If you would like to learn more about us, please visit
