Information on Past Initiatives

Background: A common initiative across all member schools of the Utah Student Association (USA), the idea of free menstrual products on campus was brough to SLCC by SLCCSA President Lindsay Simons. In collaboration with the Facilities Department, current machines were adjusted to dispense menstrual products free of charge with added signage to existing machines promoting the program. This helped save money and time, compared with buying all new machines for all 80+ women bathrooms. Beginning Fall 2022 all women’s bathrooms on all SLCC campuses give out free menstrual products.

Future: Strategy:

  • Continue working with Facilities to keep these machines stocked.
  • Add stickers to cover the 25 cent marker, which causes confusion.
  • SLCCSA maintains program signage and can provide new stickers in case of damage or new machines.

Background: Highlighting student concerns about exclusionary bathroom format, SLCCSA’s Executive Council had discussions with President Huftalin and Vice President Lepper about a communication strategies that could help students know that all SLCC bathrooms are inclusive to all genders. This initiative is an intermediate strategy until more universally designed bathrooms arrive on campus. In Phase 1, SLCCSA’s Executive Council created a short-lived design during the Summer 2022, displayed at different bathrooms on the Redwood Campus. After collecting additional feedback about the pilot, Phase 2 included a newly developed in consultation with the QSA and Institutional Marketing (pictured). Signs are currently displayed on restroom doors at the Taylorsville Redwood Student Center.

Future: Strategy:

  • Phase 3: Add signs at the Tim & Brenda Huval Student Center on Jordan Campus.
  • Work with the Faculty Senate President, Staff Association President, and Faculty Association President to get approval to put phase 2 signs on all bathrooms on all campuses.
  • SLCCSA maintains program signage and can provide new stickers in case of damage or new bathrooms.

Background: Beginning in Fall 2021 a new campus committee was formed to address pertinent and ongoing safety concerns raised by students. At the time and with a new housing development plan looming, students were feeling like their voices were not being heard regarding a series of concerning interactions with UHP and SLCC staff. Students worried that those living on campus would be subject to increased targeting and profiling from security officials. Additionally, students felt notification about safety threats were delayed and that student input about safety wasn’t taken seriously. This group was originally created by SLCCSA President Lindsay Simons and Dean of Students Ken Stonebrook with representatives from across the college. The CSR meets monthly to collaborate on meaningful ways to enhance the overall safety and well-being of our college community through open dialogue, critical feedback, and proactive response. Recommendations from the CSR will be elevated through the appropriate Cabinet member for college-wide review and consideration prior to implementation/action.

Future Strategy:

  • Continue meeting monthly with campus partners
  • Work with the Dean of Students to co-chair this meeting
  • Have a campus walk around to help UHP pinpoint areas of danger
  • Ensure student members on the committee
