At UVU sustainability represents a belief that environmental stewardship exists in balance with economic development and social responsibility. As a growing university, UVU believes that we not only have a duty to balance these interests, but an opportunity to demonstrate our core values of exceptional care, exceptional accountability, and exceptional results.
