What We Do

The Excellence and Innovation Initiative will focus on project-based learning that supports student interests and passions through multidisciplinary mentoring and subject-matter expertise on both private and public sector needs that require attention. Project development and implementation will provide students with greater problem-solving capacity, an increased ability to work within multidisciplinary teams, and much-needed industry expertise that will enhance the likelihood of job placement after graduation.

Our Model


Student writing on Whiteboard


Our goal is for students to become engaged in a different model of interdisciplinary learning. This means that UVU students will grow in knowledge of academia, but also become knowledgeable in industry applicable processes and techniques.
