About Us


Utah Valley University is the largest public university in the state of Utah, and one of a few in the nation offering a dual-mission model that combines the rigor and richness of a first-rate teaching university with the openness and vocational programs of a community college. The unique model, which focuses on student success, engaged learning, rigorous academic programs, and faculty-mentored research, is transforming higher education by making it more affordable and accessible to students of all backgrounds.

Although UVU receives funding from the state of Utah, we depend on the generosity of donors to fund important educational priorities. Donors can contribute to scholarships, new facilities, professorships, and special programs. You may also give to a college or school, a department or a program. Your gifts and involvement with UVU always make a difference in our students’ lives.

Furthermore, your involvement in the Alumni Association and other areas of the University helps improve our programs and provides important engagement opportunities for our students that directly impact their success. This is a moment for you, whether a UVU Alumni, faculty, staff, family member, or community member, to come together and support Utah Valley University. Your generosity can transform the future of the University you love and the causes you are passionate about. Your support is an investment in the future. Every gift, to any designation, and of any amount, will make a positive impact on our students. Every gift can make a difference.
