Our Mission

We believe that every student, faculty member, and staff member deserves to feel valued, connected, and engaged in their work. Our office is dedicated to helping cultivate a campus environment that is inclusive for all. We strive to accomplish this through our engagement initiatives, participatory campus engagement planning, events, and cultural competency professional development opportunities.

Engagement Plan

This Engagement Plan is our blueprint for creating a welcoming environment that empowers all students, regardless of their backgrounds, to achieve their academic goals and become globally competent graduates. Through this plan, we will equip our students with the skills and tools to become culturally aware, dynamic leaders able to navigate a nuanced, globalized world at UVU and beyond.

2023 EID 101

A group sitting around a table in discussion.
EID 101 is an event geared for all students to learn about all the resources available to them for student success and learn how faculty and administration at UVU make inclusion a priority. The goal if this event is to have each College or School host their own EID 101, in order to show how their specific area is creating a strong sense of belonging for all students. So far we have this event hosted by the School of Education, the College of Science, and College of Health and Public Service. Come to this event to listen to faculty and staff talk about how students can get involved, different plans and goals for their areas, and discuss potential challenges and opportunities within careers related to that area.
