Our mission as both a community college and university is unique and fundamental not only to meeting the educational needs of our community, but students from throughout the world. UVU is a teaching university focused on student success through inclusive, engaged and serious learning. Even though we are an open admission institution, UVU’s exceptional faculty and staff set high standards for student-learning and development and help students reach the standards.

We live in a time when everyone needs a meaningful post high school credential. UVU has both community college and university opportunities with something for everyone and encourages you to come. The university needs to grow to meet this need. Our Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation demonstrates an “alignment among campus mission, culture, leadership, resources, and practices that support dynamic and noteworthy community engagement.” Engagement means that our teaching goes beyond concepts to meaningful applications. UVU faculty engage students in interactive learning situations such as student undergraduate research, internships, case studies, study abroad... and more. For the students who participate in communities of engaged learning to the faculty and staff who create the communities... UVU is an exciting place!

Located between the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and Utah Lake, Utah Valley University is home to over 40,000 students and many outstanding academic programs. No matter what your current educational situation, whether you are a stellar student or someone seeking a second or third change, I invite you to join our community.
