Nu Skin Enterprises announced today, June 5, it has established an endowed scholarship at Utah Valley University for those studying information systems and technology. A check for $30,000, in honor of Nu Skin’s 30th anniversary today, was presented to UVU President Matthew S. Holland.
“UVU plays a remarkable role in our community,” said Steven J. Lund, executive chairman of the board of Nu Skin. “UVU has risen up to fulfill an important role in our community. Eighty-seven percent of the students who graduate from UVU remain right here in this valley, driving our economic futures together.”
Lund, who also serves as chair of the UVU Board of Trustees, said Nu Skin is “beholden to this educational institution because they are educating our future problem solvers.”
“We are very grateful. We feel a great kinship with Nu Skin,” said President Holland. “In many ways we feel like we are in the same business. We are about problem solving, research, and changing people’s lives.”
Holland said Nu Skin is a “modern marvel of what corporate responsibility and social engagement can be. That is what we champion at UVU, and we are proud to partner with them.”
The Department of Information Systems and Technology at UVU prepares students to become productive team players in today’s business world through a balanced offering of certificates, associate, and bachelor degrees in information systems and information technology.
Nu Skin currently has an endowed scholarship in the Woodbury School of Business and is the title sponsor of the University’s annual President’s Scholarship Ball.
