About Us

About us Utah Valley University is a teaching institution with a unique focus on "engaged learning,"​ or the combination of traditional academic and hands-on education. This mode of teaching goes back to UVU's roots as a vocational school at its inception during World War II and persists today across the institution's full array of university-level programs.

Known for its high moral climate, campus is recognized as one of the safest colleges in the country and is home to the largest LDS Institute program in the world. Within 20 miles, students enjoy winter sports, hiking, mountain biking, water recreation and more. Whether you enjoy outdoor adventures or prefer staying indoors, you can find it all in Utah Valley.

If outdoor activities are not your taste, there are two major malls just minutes away from campus as well as a vibrant local art and music scene. So come see for yourself how UVU's unique indoor campus makes the engaged l...
