New Respiratory Therapy Program Starts Spring, 2018

The Salt Lake Community College School of Health Sciences is pleased to announce that the Utah System of Higher Education’s Board of Regents has approved the Respiratory Therapy Program for SLCC at its Jordan Campus.
The accreditation process is one that continues until SLCC has seated a class and there is a site visit, and the College is in that process. Although SLCC cannot guarantee that the program will be accredited (and the College must disclose to students that it is in the accreditation process) School of Health Sciences Dean Dr. JoAnne Wright is confident that SLCC will obtain accreditation for this program, which will offer a night class and admit 24 students each spring. The first class will be seated spring, 2018.

Getting it Write: College Pushes Composition in Community

Yein Ji, 18, looked up from behind her computer monitor and focused her attention on the professional downhill mountain biker, who was visiting the young participants in the Salt Lake Teens Write program at the Salt Lake City Library. “What you’re doing now is going to have a huge influence on how you write and how you see the world and how you communicate later on,” said Amanda Batty, who talked to the Teens Write group about blogging, which she started doing as a teenager. “Just remember that before you hit ‘send,’ before you hit ‘publish,’ before you hit anything, the internet never forgets. I’m still learning this lesson.”

Tony Award Winner ‘Hairspray’ Opens at Grand Theatre

Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre is hosting a production of “Hairspray” to close out its 2016-17 season. The musical will run May 11 to June 3.


The 1950’s are over and change is in the air! “Hairspray,” winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly show piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the loveable, plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire: to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. Tracy uses her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and racially integrate a TV network, all without denting her ‘do.
