Board of Trustees
Message from the Chair Gregory S. Butterfield
On behalf of Utah Valley University Board of Trustees, we invite you to visit the campus and witness the extraordinary excitement and energy of the largest university in the state.
Utah Valley University is committed to being a student-centered teaching institution, which provides opportunity, promotes student success, and meets regional education needs. Over the past 70 years the university has evolved from an institution providing certificate and two-year degrees in trade and technical education, to a university with roughly sixty bachelor’s degrees, and now three masters degrees. The one constant over the years has been our commitment to student success—it stands at the heart of our mission.
As trustees, we commend President Matthew S. Holland, the faculty, staff and administrators for their vision, leadership and commitment to preparing professionally competent people of integrity who, as lifelong learners and leaders, serve as stewards of a globally independent community. We are fortunate to have faculty and administrators committed to student success, engaged learning, community collaboration, and commitment to a culture of academic rigor and professional excellence. The growth and success of UVU is a direct result of the entire UVU team.
We recognize and greatly appreciate support from the Board of Regents and the Commissioner's Office. We thank the governor, legislators and ALL who share our vision of the importance of education and the success of UVU.
As trustees we invite and encourage you to come and engage yourself with the excitement of UVU. This is your University of the future. GO WOLVERINES!
All the best,
Gregory S. Butterfield
