The center brings together the latest technology and resources in digital arts education, combines the best teachers in the valley, and puts them all in one environment—sharing, creating, inspiring and collaborating throughout its 130,000 square feet.
The technology in this unique, one-of-a-kind space is on par with or ahead of industry standards. Already it's the envy of media professionals, who have toured the screening room, TV studio, film stage and digital recording studio and said over and over, "Wow."
State-of-the-industry is a phrase that cannot be overused here. Every acoustically sensitive space in the new Center was designed by the same firm whose project credits include Disney, MGM, Paramount, Warner Brothers and Lucasfilm.
The stage has been set for student success.
The School of Arts, Communication and Media's new digital hub, the Center for Arts and Media, is committed to open access for students. The Center is already providing the very best in technological tools in the digital sphere for developing artistic entrepreneurs in the digital arts industry.
Salt Lake Community College is committed to working closely with its institutional colleagues in the Utah State Higher Education system to develop programs that will provide all digital art students in Utah access to the College's digital hub.
The College's industry partners are vital in the development of new curriculum, providing real life work experience through internships and cooperative education programs that will bolster the relationship between students and the labor force within this rapidly expanding and changing industry.
The new state-of-the-industry Center is a major investment in the future of digital arts within Utah for the benefit of students and industry. This important community asset will provide open access and successful student and it will maintain a commitment to providing a quality higher education for transfer and workforce education. The College's new digital hub will engage our community through economic and community development and cultural enrichment
