How We Lift

Innovative Academic Model

Our unique and cross-disciplinary academic model of Core + Major + Concentration allows you to tailor your education while developing the most in-demand skills in the workplace—analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and careful writing.

Active Learning in Small Classes

There’s no hiding in the back row. Averaging 15 students per classroom, our small classes are designed to encourage active participation. See how your learning thrives when you engage in meaningful discussions with peers and professors who know your name.

One-on-One Attention

Our personalized model of education creates opportunities for one-on-one mentoring from your professors, coaches, and tutors. By getting to know you on an individual level, your mentors are better equipped to help you achieve your goals—both in college and beyond.

Performance Driven

Whether competing on the field or performing on the stage, participation in extracurriculars teaches you to execute at a high-level. That’s why we emphasize learning both inside and outside of the classroom. By the time you enter the workplace, you are prepared to perform.

An iPad for Everyone

As an Apple Distinguished School, we provide every student with a new iPad. Providing everyone equal access to state-of-the-art technology levels the technological playing field and creates a tech-rich learning experience that encourages collaboration and innovation.

Spiritually Supportive

As a university aligned with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we seek to create a faith-supportive campus environment that promotes personal and spiritual development.
