Mission Statement

Our mission is to create and support seamless, accessible, and high-quality educational pathways that align with the workforce needs in the Mountainland Region and for the state of Utah.

About Educational Pathways

Educational pathways are a crucial component of a modern education system. They provide clear direction, improve efficiency, align education with career goals, and have wide-ranging benefits for students, institutions, industry, and society. As the demands of the 21st-century workforce continue to evolve, the development and implementation of effective educational pathways are essential to ensure that individuals are prepared for success in their chosen fields. Additionally, educational pathways develop talent pipelines, ensuring Utah’s workforce demands are met.

As reflected in UVU’s Completion Plan 3.0, we are reducing barriers to completion in our curricula, administrative processes, and student services while improving academic quality and rigor. (UVU Vision 2030).

These initiatives are instrumental in providing educational pathways for students that not only breakdown barriers but also strengthen the future of education to provide a workforce that is ready for the future.

  • Redesign Curricula with a Focus on Stackable Credentials and Pathways
  • Strengthen Concurrent Enrollment Course Alignment, Offerings, and Participation
  • Expand Meaningful Transfer-Credit Articulation for Students Entering and Exiting UVU
