Taylorsville, Utah (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
Salt Lake Community College Provost Dr. Chris Picard and School of Business Dean Dr. Dennis Bromley were each given the Community Partnership Award by Utah State University for their role in creating a new business education partnership between the schools.
The two received their awards during the first-ever USU Salt Lake Recognition and Awards event held in May at SLCC’s Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
Over the course of two years Picard, Bromley and USU Senior Vice Provost Dr. Ronda Rudd Menlove worked on articulation of degrees and an agreement that allows USU to deliver business education instruction at SLCC.
“It has been very successful and allows a student to complete a business degree from USU right on our Taylorsville Redwood Campus,” Picard said. He called it a “win-win partnership” that greatly benefits students.
Because of the partnership’s success, Picard and Menlove are working on other collaborations between the schools involving the Jordan campus and including disciplines such as education, media studies, deaf studies and health sciences.
