Strategic Web Action Team (SWAT)

 What is SWAT?

SWAT stands for Strategic Web Action Team under the direction of the University Communication Committee. We are a committee that directs the changes needed to keep UVU's Web current and dynamic. The committee represents all of the areas on the University Campus. We also have members from the Web Development Services and the University Marketing and Communications department. We provide a medium of communication to discuss concerns in regards to the UVU Web.


The following meeting minutes are available for reference for SWAT members and the UVU Community.  These notes represent the workings of the SWAT committee in their endeavor to help manage the UVU web presence, both internal and external.   Main topics for each meeting are listed, however, many topics are covered at each meeting and studying the minutes will help articulate those proceedings.
