This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Utah Valley University is the largest public university in Utah, and one of a few in the nation offering a dual mission that combines the rigor of a first-rate teaching university with the openness and vocational programs of a community college. President Astrid Tuminez is here to share some of the exciting things UVU has to offer.


There has never been a better time to enroll at Utah Valley University. Business Insider recently ranked UVU 3rd in the nation for best return on investment.

We have learned from the pandemic, innovated, adapted, and are moving forward. Our faculty teach students in-person, via livestream, and online while we follow the Governor’s COVID-19 policy.

We are building the state’s economy by partnering with local businesses, industry, and communities. Thanks to federal COVID-19 recovery funding, we have been able to offer 23 tuition-free, skill-up training classes to help Utahn’s secure employment. UVU now offers bachelor’s degrees in civil, mechanical, computer, and electrical engineering to help fill the state’s need for more engineers, and many other new courses including partnering with Park City Hotels to offer a degree in resort management.

There has never been a better time to enroll at Utah Valley University. Join us and thrive.


 UVU is an excellent institution focused on both student success and building Utah’s economy. Learn more by visiting I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
