STUDENT SUCCESS


Student Success is the essence of UVU’s mission and the focus of the mission statement. Action commitments identify thematic areas of activity that lead toward fulfillment of the mission. Objectives are specific actions that UVU will take to achieve its mission. They are not themselves specific, actionable goals for the university, but will be implemented in operational and organizational plans. Success is defined by metrics that assess achievement of the objectives. This structure is identical to UVU’s current framework and complies with the requirements of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), UVU’s institutional accreditor.
