On behalf of the faculty and administration at Utah Valley University, it's my great
pleasure to welcome you and your student to a campus community that eagerly anticipates
your arrival. This is a remarkable time in your student's life — one for which we've
prepared for more than seven decades here at UVU by refining our tireless dedication
to student success.
At Utah Valley University, your student will find opportunities to participate in
an active process called "engaged learning." This approach to teaching and learning
combines the foundations of academic theory with the context of practical application.
We believe this creates a deep, lasting connection with the curriculum. No matter
what course of study your student chooses to pursue, an engaged learning experience
is in store.
The new Student Life and Wellness Building is just one example of our commitment to
student success. Recently completed in April 2014, it offers students more space to
grow and develop physically, mentally and spiritually, with everything from basketball
courts and Student Life offices to study and reflection rooms. Likewise, the new Classroom
Building, which will be completed in November 2014, will provide an additional 244,000
square feet of academic learning space at UVU and will help ensure that students and
faculty members have the physical learning tools and atmosphere that are vital to
student success. Please join us in encouraging your son or daughter to make the most
of his or her UVU experience by taking advantage of these great resources and committing
to diligent study.
Again, we are delighted that your student is coming to UVU. I am confident that you,
like those of us fortunate to work here, will be so pleased and proud of the growth
you will observe in your student as he or she develops intellectually, socially and
ethically at this dynamic institution of higher learning.
