School of the Arts Play

Music, dance, visual arts, and theater performance provide peak human experiences for every generation. Evidence of arts civilizing influences defines the progress of humankind since the dawn of time. Each of us has felt that influence listening to a mesmerizing symphony, gazing at a glorious painting or sculpture, watching a breathtaking ballet, or laughing and crying our way through a play. Art defines us as human; it joins us to each other, connects us with past cultures and peoples, and links us to future generations.

A rich and inclusive UVU artistic education opens doors to a meaningful and worthwhile university education. The School of the Arts teaches students how to provide and appreciate artistic experiences. Our faculty offers students opportunities to extend and deepen their artistic training; to refine performing skills and abilities; and to broaden artistic literacy campus-wide. The School has approximately 1,500 majors in various artistic disciplines and over 20,000 students from across campus attend one or more arts-related general education courses each year. We offer Bachelor degrees in 13 artistic disciplines and Associate degrees in four.

I came to the campus this summer as Interim Dean. I am amazed and deeply gratified by the serious work of the Schools faculty and students. This year our School has opened a new theater facility (The Noorda) with special emphasis on childrens dramatic arts; we will offer symphonic, chamber, vocal, and contemporary musical performances; ballet, modern, and ballroom dance experiences; painting, drawing, graphic, and photographic exhibitions, in addition to teaching hundreds of courses in these varied artistic disciplines.

I invite you, whether student or audience member, to enjoy these experiences. Learn from the civilizing influences of art at UVU. Let them enrich your life and the lives of those around you. Take a class. Attend a play, concert, ballet, or art exhibition. Enjoy an extraordinary educational adventure—a life-long journey of artistic engagement!

Woodbury School of Business Play

It is a great honor and privilege to welcome you to the Woodbury School of Business (WSB) at Utah Valley University (UVU). There is no better time to be a student at UVU than now. We are going through some exciting changes as we emerge as Utah's newest university.

The business programs recently had the distinction of being accredited by AACSB International, which is the largest and most prestigious accrediting body for business programs across the world. Less than one-third of the business programs in the United States and only about fifteen percent of the business programs in the world hold this accreditation.


The Woodbury School of Business is growing by leaps and bounds, thanks to the generosity of community businesses, alumni and donors. We are indeed grateful to the Woodbury family and their generous gift of $20 million. Their gift and the gifts of others will help ensure the future growth of the business programs.

We are pleased to be accepting applications for the Master of Business Administration program. We will begin the first cohort of MBA graduate students in fall 2010. The new MBA program reflects the university's commitment to engaged learning as our students will take an active part in community development projects as a part of their capstone course. Students will also become engaged in all aspects of management, including accounting, leadership, marketing, economics, ethics, and social responsibility.

Through all the changes, the Woodbury School of Business has been committed to excellence in education. We extend an invitation to all students who desire an excellent education and a successful future to apply. Please contact our advising office at (801) 863-8032 for information about our courses and degree programs.
