Mission and Vision

The Office for Global Engagement strives to empower students to become competent and confident leaders and world citizens. For this purpose, we are launching the creation of a new student group to support our mission, the UVU Global Student Leadership Council (GSLC).  This council will enhance student success and leadership potential of its members by offering immersive international experiences, facilitating exposure to diverse cultures, and fostering diplomatic skills. The council will also be raising awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development GoalsThe council will be comprised of 4 to 6 students and members must be committed to council events, event programming and council success.
