The Office of Engaged Learning was created in 2010 to promote and support academic
engagement at UVU. The office develops institutional strategies for engagement, facilitates
innovative teaching practices, and oversees a variety of initiatives and programs
including Grants for Engaged Learning (GEL), University Forum, the Engaged Learning
University Distinction, Undergraduate Research support, and more.
Engaged learning is an approach to education that involves active and collaborative
learning. It provides students the opportunity to connect their classroom experience
with concrete applications in professional and civic life.
