When & Where
Utah Valley University - Multicultural Student Services
Multicultural Student Services promotes and sustains an inclusive campus community. We validate, celebrate, and advance intercultural enrichment and diversity at Utah Valley University. We cultivate and develop relationships that are conducive to student success, academic growth, persistence and completion of academic programs by underrepresented populations. Through campus and community partnerships our initiatives strengthen student involvement, advocate accountability, and foster leadership in a global society.
The primary goals of Multicultural Student Services are to recruit, retain, support, and graduate ethnic and all other underrepresented student minority populations. Through active partnerships and programs with the university, Utah, western states, the nation and other countries, we also strive to include and enrich all UVU students, faculty, staff, and the community.
