Finance & Administration Mission Statement

Finance & Administration divisions and departments provide customer focused, responsive and effective administrative services for students, faculty, staff and visitors to advance Utah Valley University's mission.


Val Peterson

Finance & Administration exists to support students, faculty and staff. A lot of our services are somewhat in the background keeping the University running.  Buildings are built and maintained, information technology and telephone services keep us connected, finance and business services work to keep us financially secure, and emergency preparedness helps to keep up safe and ready during disasters.
