I want to personally welcome you to the 2013-2014 academic year at Salt Lake Community College! I am thrilled to start another year, after so many successful students continue to walk through our doors. I am proud to report that for the last 10 years the college has been ranked in the top ten colleges for associates degrees conferred. A large number of our students will, and have, graduated and gone immediately into jobs in their fields of study. Alternatively, many students plan to take their knowledge and course credit and move on to four-year schools across the state. At SLCC, we are committed to helping you achieve your educational goals and career objectives, whatever they may be.
This year is bringing new students, new programs, continued success and some advances to our campuses. We are excited to announce two new buildings opening this year. The Center for New Media at the South City Campus and the Instructional and Administration Building at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. The Center for New Media will feature state-of-the-art (and industry) facilities that emphasize student and community engagement in communication, visual, and performing arts and sciences. The Center for New Media will be the cultural and artistic hub of the college. The Instructional and Administration Building will add valuable classroom space and contain a bright and airy cultural commons to study and collaborate with fellow students. We hope that with these new resources, we can further our mission to provide comprehensive, lifelong learning for our students.
The success of this college is possible because of exceptional students like you. Your accomplishments and passion make us what we are today. I would like to encourage you to take advantage of the many services, activities, and clubs to ensure that your time at Salt Lake Community College is a great experience.
Wishing you success this year,
