UVU is a teaching institution where students learn, do and become. Home to more than 30,000 students, UVU is now one of the largest institutions of higher learning in Utah--quite an evolution for an institution that began with a few hundred students learning wartime trades on the old Provo fairgrounds. As a teaching institution that educates more Utahns than any other university, UVU's primary focus is on student success--the academic, professional and personal success of its students.
