Mission Statement

The Utah Valley University (UVU) Institutional Advancement Executive Events Team manages and executes events that are initiated by the president of the university or the vice president of Institutional Advancement. These events reflect the university's standards of exceptional care, exceptional accountability, and exceptional results while expressing gratitude for those who donate to the university.  

The Executive Events Team won two gold Circle of Excellence Awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for events held in 2020 and 2021. The Pedestrian Bridge Ribbon Cutting and the 2020 President’s Drive-in Scholarship Ball were honored for unique incorporations of pandemic safety standards that kept attendees safe while still promoting a memorable experience. This national recognition highlights the high standards of excellence the Executive Events Team demonstrates through their work.
