Artes de Mexico en Utah

Salt Lake Community College

The University of Utah’s Asia Center and Center for Latin American Studies prioritize our relationship with Salt Lake Community College’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences.  Together we have developed a partnership which supports our mutual interests in the development and longevity of courses at SLCC that explore international topics and global themes.  We have also worked to encourage students to study world languages, especially less commonly taught languages.  

SLCC transfer students are well positioned to transfer International/Global course work from SLCC into Asian Studies and Latin American Studies majors and minors.  The Asia Center and Center for Latin American Studies academic advising staff have created transfer worksheets for SLCC students, available online, in order to lay out course work available at SLCC that transfers into Asian Studies and Latin American Studies majors and minors.  In addition, the Asia Center and Center for Latin American Studies host a transfer guide on our websites with useful resources and information. 

Asia Center and Center for Latin American Studies also support SLCC faculty development by offering a Travel Award for Professional Development in Global Studies, Area Studies and Foreign Language Pedagogy. The call for proposals PDF can be found here.

Participation in the University of Utah Tanner Humanities Center Professors Off Campus Program, with projects that involved Title I schools with heavily Latin American immigrant and Latino student populations.

2014-2015 Professors Off Campus

Juan Carlos Claudio - Assistant Professor, Department of Modern Dance

Professor Claudio's project is titled "Bridging Cultures to Form a Nation: Dancing Through Differences in a Community of Democratic Thinking." Partnering with Bryant Middle School of the Salt Lake City School District, Claudio will use dance as a medium to enhance personal and social responsibility while expanding students' knowledge of peoples of different cultures. By exploring dance as a means of empowerment, discovery, and community building, he looks to reduce the school's truancy rate and cultivate personal ownership by students in their academic studies.

2012-13 Professors Off Campus

Susie Porter - Associate Professor, Department of History/Gender Studies Program

Professor Porter's project brings together the University of Utah's Gender Studies program, the Women's Resource Center, and Franklin Elementary School to provide opportunities for University students to mentor young girls' self-esteem, skill development, and leadership abilities.
