Young Living announced it has donated $4.5 million for the construction of a new Alumni Center on the Utah Valley University (UVU) Orem Campus. Young Living believes its dedication to improving the wellbeing of all people aligns well with UVU’s core values to support all students.
“Investing in education is the work of individuals, families, taxpayers, leaders and our whole community,” said Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez, President of Utah Valley University. “As we combine our resources and commitments of time and energy, we will build a more sustainable, prosperous, and equitable society. I am grateful to partners who share this vision with UVU.”
The UVU Young Living Alumni Center is expected to be a high-impact addition to the campus and function as the hub of campus activity. The state-of-the-art event center will be located just off of I-15 in a central location for the campus, which welcomes thousands of visitors each year.
“This significant gift will be truly transformational as Institutional Advancement seeks to scale its operations to meet the enormous growth of the university,” said Scott Cooksey, Vice President of Institutional Advancement and CEO of the UVU Foundation. “The events space will allow our esteemed alumni a place on campus to gather and also serve as a dynamic venue to attract and host international and national dignitaries and board members.”
