Pacific Islander Initiative

ekolu niu

Launched in the summer of 2015, the Pacific Islander Initiative at Utah Valley University received its start through a grant funded by the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) and StepUP Utah, in partnership with UVU Multicultural Student Services. Through the efforts and programs stemming from this grant, we are continuing to build relationships with community partners and organizations to better serve our Pacific Islander students while striving to collectively promote and advocate for academic and cultural success among our Pacific Islander students within UVU and the community.

Engagement with our current and prospective Pacific Islander students and the community is vital to the success of our initiative, and because of these strong relationships, we are able to bridge the gaps collectively that prevent our Pacific Islander students from obtaining higher education opportunities.
