Press / News

UVU's News blog is the best place to find out what's new in academics, arts and entertainment, conferences and the UVU community. You can also stay up to date with the amazing engaged learning experiences our students are involved in every day.


UVU is a teaching institution where students learn, do and become. At UVU, the fusion of academic and hands-on learning is referred to as "engaged learning." Along with the institution's long-rooted commitment to serving the needs of the community, UVU's emphasis on engaged learning led to its classification as "community engaged" by the Carnegie Foundation. UVU's Grants for Engaged Learning Office oversees a $400,000 grant program in support of engaged learning projects.

At UVU, students participate in internships, community service and curriculum that includes the "how" along with the "what" and "why."


Throughout its history, UVU has responded to its service region’s (Utah, Wasatch and Summit counties) population changes and business/industry needs. This responsiveness is evidenced in its mission, program offering, degree level, and enrollment changes.
