SLCC Receives $600K National Science Foundation grant

Salt Lake Community College was recently awarded a $604,000 grant from the National Science Foundation’s Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program.

The Foundation’s program supports scholarships for academically talented students demonstrating a financial need, enabling them to enter the workforce following completion of an associate or bachelor’s degree in a STEM discipline. Institutions throughout the U.S. annually vie for grants from this highly competitive program.

“Our plan is designed to substantially increase the number of graduates in STEM disciplines who come from disadvantaged backgrounds,” said Craig Caldwell, SLCC interim dean of the School of Science, Mathematics & Engineering. “Economic growth in Utah has created an immediate need for STEM graduates in the workforce. Both the private sector and state government are strongly articulating the need to rapidly increase graduation rates in STEM areas to fill the needs of local employers.”


Caldwell said the funds will support students, in particular minorities and women, who are committed to completing STEM-related degrees. This will include traditional students as well as a group of near-completers who have "stalled" in their education. The outcome is expected to be a doubling of the number of graduates in SLCC's STEM programs over the course of the five-year project.

SLCC Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement? A. State leaders recently granted Utah System of Higher Education institutions more flexibility in decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccination requirements for Spring semester 2022. The surge in cases due to the Delta variant has put a huge strain on Utah’s health care system, and the college can play an important role in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 by requiring students to get vaccinated. Q. Why are SLCC employees not subject to the vaccination requirement? A. The college is currently waiting for a legal review and authority to consider a vaccination requirement for SLCC employees. Updates will be provided as the college receives information on this matter. Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement rather than a mask mandate? A. Utah law only allows state and local health departments, with approval from the relevant county legislative bodies, to issue mask mandates. With that said, SLCC encourages every

Vaccination Requirement for Summer, Fall Registration Remains In Place

  As has been the case throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Salt Lake Community College is committed to creating a safe and healthy learning environment. To ensure that everyone in our campus community remain as safe as possible, SLCC will require that all students be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster doses as applicable, for the upcoming Summer and Fall Semesters.   Students accessing SLCC’s registration portal will have an automatic hold placed on their registration. To remove the hold, students will need to upload proof of current vaccination or claim an exemption. Exemptions can be granted for medical, religious or personal reasons. Students who are fully vaccinated but are not yet eligible to receive a booster dose are considered to have an up-to-date vaccination status and will be eligible to register for classes. Priority registration for the 2022 Summer Semester begins February 28.   Vaccination is one of the best available tools to prevent serious illne
