PACE Students Visit College for Career Exploration

Multiple students involved in Salt Lake Community College's PACE program (Partnerships for Accessing College Education) took part in the annual summer Career Exploration day by visiting two SLCC campuses. They learned about non-destructive testing and took a turn in a flight simulator at the Westpointe Center and they had hands-on experiences inside the Dumke Center for STEM learning at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.

PACE is a scholarship program created to increase college participation and graduation rates for high school students. The Project was created by a partnership between local high schools, businesses, and Salt Lake Community College (SLCC). Eligible high school freshman at participating schools are invited to enroll in the four-year program.


   A two-year scholarship to Salt Lake Community College upon successful completion of the PACE program.
   Summer opportunities to explore careers through field trips and job shadowing.
   Resources and support systems to assist students through high school toward college and into a rewarding career.
   Builds a strong academic foundation by requiring students to take college-level class.
   Consideration for the Access U Program.
