SLCC awarded Business Partner of the Year

The nonprofit Columbus, an agency that supports people with disabilities, recently honored Salt Lake Community College with its Business Partner of the Year award. The honor recognizes SLCC for working with Columbus to promote vocational opportunities for people with disabilities within the business community.

SLCC was given the award recently during Columbus’ 10th annual Dignity Through Work recognition event. The SLCC Facilities Services Department has awarded grounds maintenance and custodial contracts to Columbus, which in turn has allowed Columbus to provide vocational training and employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities.
