What is engaged learning?

Utah Valley University is a teaching institution with a unique focus on "engaged learning," or the combination of traditional academic and hands-on education. This mode of teaching goes back to UVU's roots as a vocational school at its inception during World War II and persists today across the institution's full array of university-level programs.

Since 2008, the prestigious Carnegie Foundation has classified UVU as a "community engaged" institution.
