For the students who participate in "Communities of Engaged Learners," to the faculty and staff who create those communities... UVU is an exciting place for all!
The best universities set high standards for student learning and development, and then help students reach those standards. Standards for learning and the support for student success are in the hands of our exceptional faculty and staff. UVU faculty engages students in interactive learning situations such as student undergraduate research, internships, case studies, study abroad... and more.

These three components combine to produce an atmosphere, not only of learning, but of engaged learning, that connects the classroom with the community and provides students with real-world, hands-on training with community partners. It is our intention that students graduate with a diploma and a resume.
