Dear Friends of UVU,
The story of Utah Valley University is one of engagement. Since 1941, our institution
has maintained a reputation for hands-on learning and student success. The applied
dimensions of learning have taken a variety of forms since our days as Central Utah
Vocational School. From ethics education to automotive technology, engaged learning
has developed in a variety of disciplines and the university continues to find ways
to connect students and faculty in a meaningful and relevant learning environment.
The Office of Engaged Learning is designed to expand the role of engagement in our
academic pursuits and to build upon previous successes across the university. By creating
a culture of engagement on our campus, students and faculty will continue to find
creative ways to apply their classroom learning to broader contexts.
As an expression of our commitment to innovation and quality, we have introduced a
variety of initiatives to cultivate a dynamic and collaborative learning environment.
These projects are designed to compliment the outstanding contributions of our faculty
and staff and provide resources necessary to explore new opportunities.
Whether you are part of our student body, faculty, staff, or community, we invite
you to join the conversation in helping us shape the future of a great university.
Brian D. Birch
