Welcome - Dr. Cynthia Bioteau, President of SLCC
Higher Ed 2020 Goals - Dr. Blair Carruth, Assistant Commissioner, USHE
This session will address the critical role CTE will play as Utah prepares its future workforce. Research shows that only 43% of Utah’s adult population has a postsecondary credential, yet 66% of Utah jobs will require a postsecondary education within the next eight years. Certificates and associate’s degrees will play a key role in filling this gap. This session will provide ideas on how CTE faculty and administrators can create programs that get more of our students ready for the future workforce and that provide opportunities for continued education.

Role/Integration Path, RPOS Grant and CBJT Grant
The RPOS Grant (Promoting Rigorous Career and Technical Education Programs of Study) is a four-year federal grant awarded to the Utah State Board of Education in October 2010. Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) was asked to participate by collaborating with the Salt Lake School District, and in particular, West High School. Participants attending this session will learn about this collaboration which has led to providing the following: curriculum alignment; summer program for participating students which included SLCC classroom observations, hospital tours, and a session for parents and students; professional development workshops organized for high school counselors, biology and health science teachers, with the participation of SLCC faculty, students and advisors to focus on health sciences programs.
The Community Based Job Training Grant (CBJT) focuses on training low income, disadvantaged students and youth, the unemployed and displaced workers for the many careers within the digital media arts industry. The presentation will identify some of the highlights of the past two years, the characteristics of the participating student body and the successful grant processes developed by grant managers.
