A Dual-Mission University

Utah Valley University is the largest public university in the state of Utah, and one of a few in the nation offering a dual-mission model that combines the rigor and richness of a first-rate teaching university with the openness and vocational programs of a community college. The unique model, which focuses on student success, engaged learning, rigorous academic programs, and faculty-mentored research, is transforming higher education by making it more affordable and accessible to students of all backgrounds.

“Schools like Utah Valley University… are the future of higher education, where one institution or one system can address the full needs of a city or state’s workforce with multiple resources for education.”
