Alexis Palmer

Associate VP of Student Development & Well-Being/Dean of Students

Welcome to Utah Valley University and to the Student Development & Well-Being division! As the Dean of Students, my job is to lead the division in creating resources, programs, initiatives, and events that support and advocate for students.

Student Development & Well-Being is committed to helping you navigate your journey at UVU. We want to make sure that you feel inspired, connected, safe, empowered, and respected while you are at UVU. Education happens both inside and outside the classroom and a successful college experience includes a balance of academic, social, civic, and personal growth and development. Please take advantage of utilizing the resources available to all UVU students. Whether it is taking time to meditate in the SLWC Reflection Center, participating in Wolverine Bingo, or visiting with a mental health therapist we are here to support you.

If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. You can reach me via email at [email protected] or if you would like to meet with me call 801-863-8311 to set up an appointment. I wish you the best as you work towards your degree.

Go Wolverines!
