The Literacies and Composition Department understands that all students bring with them rich and diverse histories, knowledge, skills, and literacies that can be applied to the literacy work they will take part in as college students at UVU. We are committed to providing opportunities for students to recognize their own oral, written, and visual literacies as relevant to the academic setting and to helping them develop these literacies for the work they will do in the academy, in the workplace, and in their personal lives.
