Video Detailing SLCC’s Competency-Based Education Program Wins National Award

Salt Lake Community College won third place in the Competency-Based Education Network’s first-ever national Storytelling Contest. The school received the award for a video presentation highlighting the benefits of SLCC’sCompetency-Based Education program.

SLCC tied with Southern New Hampshire University and as part of the award received $1,000 for its CBE program. Winning videos were selected for their ability to illustrate the value of CBE’s innovative approach to higher education. This year, 18 video stories were submitted by C-BEN member schools. The competition is designed to encourage member universities to share digital stories about the positive impact competency-based education is having on their students.

SLCC is a founding member of C-BEN and has played a large role in helping to develop and refine the organization’s quality framework for CBE programs. Since 2015, SLCC has enrolled over 1,000 students in its CBE programs, which run on an open-term and allow students to accelerate and decelerate their studies as needed. In addition, students can start a program on most any Monday throughout the year.
