Dear Salt Lake Community College Students,

Since the founding of Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) in 1948, the institution has advanced on an unending path towards becoming a more inclusive, positive and safe space for the students. Recently, there was yet another terror attack on American soil perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, where dozens were injured and a young woman died. As representatives of the SLCC Student Association, we would like to express our deepest regrets and firm opposition to white supremacy and these acts of terrorism they’ve executed.

As we enter the upcoming academic year, we want to emphasize that behaviors of hate and intolerance are unacceptable and do not have a place at SLCC. We are strongly committed to making SLCC a welcoming and supportive place for all our students. We hope that you will join us in helping all members of our college community feel welcome and included.

There is still much work to do to ensure a welcoming and positive environment to all our students, not only on campus yet also in the community. There are people in this country who have given their lives to make sure this kind of hate doesn't spread. We, the SLCC Student Association Executive Council, invite all the students to join us in standing against intolerance, acknowledging that racism exists and standing up for what is right.  We support and defend all students and will strive to maintain safe and courageous spaces for our community.


Sincerely,

Salt Lake Community College Student Association Executive Council

But we want to see students return only with their health and safety as our highest priority.With that, our plan is to welcome students back in time for the start of this coming fall semester with in-person and, as always, a wide variety of online class offerings. We will continue to monitor guidelines issued by the state and the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), and, if there are any changes to this plan, we will notify students immediately.USHE recently issued a press release with a COVID-19 update, which can be found here. For a full recap of USHE’s detailed plans, click here.USHE institutions, including SLCC, are currently working on what a return to campus will look and feel like this fall.
