Pacific Islander Initiative

Utah Valley University (UVU) is committed to the success of our Pacific Islander students.  Efforts are currently being made to improve college access and graduation achievement for Pacific Islander students from underserved communities.

Pacific Islander Initiative

Staff members have traveled since 2007 to American Samoa and Hawaii and Tahiti. In Samoa, UVU has been the only mainland four-year institution represented among colleges and universities. While there is not currently a Pacific Islander initiative at UVU, current efforts are underway to build the foundation for this initiative program.  Through the collaboration of Utah System of Higher Education and StepUP Utah, we are furthering our efforts to serve these students and implement programs that would contribute to their academic and collegiate success.
