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.
