About UVUN

As of November 2017, Utah Valley University has officially become an Associate Member of UN-DPI (United Nations Department of Public Information). This is the culmination of many years of work with partners here at the University and outside the institution. This new partnership will bring many new and exciting opportunities for students at UVU. 

The Office for Global Engagement organizes and promotes activities related to the United Nations on campus. Some of the events that UVU students have been involved in include leading Side and Parallel Events at the Commission on the Staus of Women at the UN Headquaters in NYC and promoting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) during United Nations Day. 

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945. It is currently made up of 193 Member States. The mission and work of the United Nations are guided by the purposes and principles contained in its founding Charter. Another important document is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone in the fight for Human Rights everywhere.
