Cultural Envoy Leadership Program (CELP)

Multicultural Student Services Outreach through the Cultural Envoy Leadership Program (CELP) is provided to public schools, corporations, state, and community entities. Students become eligible for leadership opportunities and scholarships by meeting and presenting at leadership-promoting opportunities.

What is CELP?

The Cultural Envoy Leadership Program is a UVU sponsored leadership program that validates students’ cultures and supports their pathway to completion. As a student in CELP, you will learn to navigate and negotiate your experience at UVU, your community, and other critical spaces that you may celebrate as important.

The program is open to all students who want to understand and refine facets of their culture, identity, and lived experiences to facilitate their development as scholars, change agents, and stewards of a globally interdependent community.

Summer Bridge

CELP provides a summer bridge component for incoming freshmen to UVU in the month of June. The program is an opportunity to incoming freshmen to take a Math Leap course and a writing course that helps students prepare for fall semester. The classes are taught Tuesdays and Thursdays for four weeks at the UVU campus and culminate with a banquet where students are recognized for their completion of the program. The students in the summer bridge program are mentored by current students from CELP, thus giving incoming freshmen valuable insight into understanding how to navigate college.
