What We Mean by "Inclusion"

UVU is committed to preparing all students and employees for success in an increasingly complex, diverse, and globalized society. We promote civility and respect for the dignity and potential of each individual. We seek to advance the understanding of diverse perspectives. We value and promote collegial relationships and mutual respect among students, faculty, and staff. We acknowledge and seek to address the needs of populations who are underrepresented and students with varying levels of academic preparation, even as we strive to provide access and support for all students and employees in ways that are culturally relevant and responsible.

Exceptional Care in Inclusion

A complex world requires a comprehensive approach to inclusion.

At UVU, include is an action commitment that is a crucial part of our identity. Our dedicated staff, faculty, and students were involved for more than 18 months in constructing Inclusion Plan 2020-2024.

We were so pleased with the feedback from our community stakeholders. We are very proud of this plan.

Cultivating a more welcoming educational environment to empower student success and healthier campus climates in which we all belong are key parts of who we are as a university.
