UVU Student Elections

General Information

With the many ways to get involved at UVU there is definitely something for everyone! One of those is to run for a student body officer position within the Utah Valley University Student Association. There are four positions available: Student Body President, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Academic Senate, Vice President of Student Activities. Together with the Vice President of Clubs (elected by the Inter Club Council), these student officers serve as the Executive Student Council overseeing the UVUSA Student Council. These positions represent the student voice across campus as they assess, express, and address student issues to campus administration. They develop and promote campus programming, strive to educate students about resources available to them, and advocate for student needs. 

Application packets to run are available online and in the UVUSA office, SL 122. Candidates are elected by the general student body (any student registered for 1+ credits, concurrent enrollment students are not eligible to vote) and voting will take place March 5-9, 2018. 

To learn more about the elections process, officer position, responsibilities, and requirements read through the UVUSA Elections Packet.
