The Career Development Center will rank among the finest in higher education, offering products and services that delight and exceed the expectations of students, graduates, alumni, employers, and the Utah Valley University community. Our growth and funding will match the growing needs of our constituents and stakeholders. We will be known for not only providing consistent, superior, skilled, and quality services, but also for creating an atmosphere of professional, friendly, persistent, and enthusiastic support.

Our staff will be empowered to make decisions consistent with our mission and will be inspired and rewarded in their work. We will attract community, interstate, and international employers to offer internship/co-op, and full-time career positions to our students in all majors and at salaries equal to or above what is offered to peer institution students. Our results will provide recognition to UVU from accrediting and professional organizations and from the community for adding value and benefiting students who enroll at UVU.
