State of the University

The 2022 State of the University address is tomorrow, January 19.

There are two options to attend:

  1. In-person at The Noel and Carrie Vallejo Auditorium in the new Keller Building (reserve a seat here).
  2. Virtual at UVU's YouTube page (watch remotely here).

HR Annual Compliance Trainings

All employees are required to complete the following compliance training courses at least once each year:

  • Title IX and Sexual Harassment
  • UVU FERPA Training
  • Workplace Conduct
  • Conflict of Interest
  • UVU Cybersecurity Training

You can access these courses in the “Learning Library” in UVULearn. The direct link for UVULearn is, or you can access it in myUVU under the “Human Resources | Performance & Development | UVULearn” tab. The trainings should take approximately two hours in total to complete.

HR is moving to a yearly deadline for current employees to complete these five courses by Monday, February 28, 2022. If you have already taken all five courses since February 28, 2021, you will not need to complete them until the next deadline in 2023. Otherwise, please complete them as soon as possible, and let your supervisor know if you have any questions.

Employees who fail to complete all five courses by the February 28 deadline will be redirected to UVULearn when signing into UVU systems beginning on March 1, 2022. The employee will continue to be redirected until they complete the required trainings. Staff will also be given a “Does Not Meet Expectations” in the “Exceptional Accountability” section on their next performance review, per Policies 633 and 635.
