Utah is a business powerhouse leading the nation in economic growth, largely due to the dynamic local industry known as the “Silicon Slopes.” UVU’s Digital Media Department is stepping up to meet the burgeoning demand for digital media expertise, local and global, by taking the lead in training new generations to master both current and emerging technologies. We have outlined four key objectives that align with UVU's Vision 2030.

Ensure Continued Student Success


  • Training students for technical competence based on fundamental principles of science and technology
  • Expansion of current programs and creation of new curricula for cutting-edge technologies, often in real-time as industry leading technologies emerge

COMMITTMENT TO INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY


  • Foster a creative learning and research environment with a dynamic spirit of agile innovation that extends to all the Digital Media’s stakeholders — students, faculty industry, and community, both local and global.

STRENGTHEN TIES WITH INDUSTRY & COMMUNITY


  • Strengthen current ties with industry and communities while reaching out for new relationships
  • Engage students and partners to collaborate through mentoring, internships, and careers

ENHANCE BRANDING, MARKETING, & COMMUNICATIONS


  • Let the world know of the dynamic growth taking place at UVU in order to build access to the best partnerships, funding opportunities, government resources, and talented faculty, staff and students.
