The public is invited to attend any of four open meetings in advance of the search for the eighth president of Salt Lake Community College.

“This is an opportunity for people to help chart the course of this school’s future,” said SLCC Public Relations Director Joy Tlou. “It’s the public’s chance to talk about what characteristics they would like to see in a new president and outline priorities for the school’s new leader.”
The meeting dates and locations are as follows:
4:00 p.m. Jordan Campus Health Sciences Auditorium
3491 W 9000 South, West Jordan

The position opened up this year upon the departure of President Cynthia Bioteau, who accepted a position as president of Florida State College in Jacksonville. The State Board of Regents selected Dr. Deneece Huftalin, SLCC Vice President of Student Services, to serve as the College’s interim president.
