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." It's kind of our thing. 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 Center for Engaged Learning
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 the "why."
