In 1941, under the direction of Hyrum E. Johnson, those vocational training courses were moved to a central location in south Provo, so Utah Valley University were named Central Utah Vocational School. During the summer of 1945. Wilson W. Sorensen, former purchasing agent for the school, was appointed director. Sorensen was instrumental in obtaining a new 13-acre site for the school in Provo, purchased by Provo City, Utah County, and the four local school districts with the understanding that the state would finance new college facilities. In 1952, the state appropriated $400,000 for the first phase of the Provo Campus. The complete facility was built in three phases and completed in 1963. The campus was designed for 1,200 students. In 1961, enrolment was nearing 1,000 students; by 1971, it increased 100 percent to nearly 2,000, far more than the campus could accommodate.
