Salt Lake Community College presents Jorge A. Vanegas on November 16 at 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. in the Student Event Center at the College’s Taylorsville Redwood Campus. Dr. Venegas’s presentation is entitled ‘The Dream – Do Nexus: Rekindling Imagination and Unleashing.’ Vanegas is an expert in built environment sustainability and advanced project delivery strategies.

His presentation will feature general strategies, processes, tools, and principles for developing new products, processes, services, and business models.
A registered architect in Colombia, Vanegas’s presentation provides the framework for a student-centered accelerator for business start-ups composed of an applied creativity hub to generate ideas; a business incubation center; and a physical space to support creative activities and interactions among students, former students, and faculty researchers.
In addition to his architecture degree, Vanegas holds master’s and doctorate degrees in construction engineering and management from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University.
