summer intercultural opportunities

The UVU School of Education enriches our students’ professional preparation and deepens their understanding of the world’s diversity by offering them a variety of international and domestic intercultural experiences. These experiences foster personal growth and self-reflection through participatory learning relevant to the diversity in Utah and help to enhance effective educational practice and culturally relevant pedagogy.  

Many of these opportunities also meet the requirements for UVU's Global/Intercultural Distinction.  Additional information regarding the Global/Intercultural Distinction can be found at the link below:
