Cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 situation and after careful consideration, the decision has been made to cancel Summer University for 2020. Summer University has been a well-loved conference for the past 12 years at UVU, and this decision was not made lightly. We look forward to having Summer University return in 2021, with all the enjoyable activities and learning opportunities.
