Existing Inter-Campus Relationships


Salt Lake Community College is a large, complex organization serving an annual cumulative headcount of more than 60,000 students. Depending upon a wide range of diverse student needs, the functional relationship of the various campuses may be described in multiple ways.

  • Themed Clusters: Concentration of related programs organizes the campuses into themed clusters, such as health professions at Jordan, visual and performing arts at South City, and so on, making efficient use of specialized facilities in support of these themes.
  • Independent Sites: Although administrative function remains centralized, the model of autonomous independent sites allows students to pursue credit and non-credit programs at the location most convenient to them.
  • Regional Clusters: The regional cluster model allows students to pursue credit and non-credit programs within one of three loosely organized geographic clusters.
