Company Profile
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. In 2008, the prestigious Carnegie Foundation classified UVU as a "community engaged"​ institution. This elective classification reflects UVU's curricular emphasis on engaged learning and longstanding role as a community problem-solver. Among other things, this means that we place a great emphasis on "learning by doing."​ As a result, there are many opportunities for students here to get involved in activities in and out of the classroom that will not only deepen their understanding of the subject matter they are studying but will also give them some vital real-world experience. We are finding this makes our graduates some of the most sought after in today’s competitive workforce.
