Mission

Build on the existing EID work, and adopt a bottom-up approach to expand and sustain the support for UVU’s communities. Strengthen the efforts in diversity-based sensitive programming, identify areas of growth and improvement, design a comparable and customizable measurement system to develop targeted result-based programming to address critical issues, and better provide resources of learning and innovation for educational plans and career development for all.

Vision

Grow, nurture and sustain an inclusive culture, where differences drive innovation and learning, to meet the needs of UVU’s community, where members can bring their authentic selves to campus.

 

UVU adopts a tailored holistic approach to creating an environment of equity and inclusion where ALL individuals are valued and respected regardless of their backgrounds, experiences, groups, and abilities. Together, we work on pedagogy, services, policies, and practices, to create an equitable and inclusive environment and elevate the sense of belonging, of which diversity is a by-product of UVU's inclusion policies and practices. The below model shows the collaboration between three main areas to address equity, inclusion, and diversity.
