BIOLOGY
The Biology Department is excited to be a part of the
Genome Mapping and Annotation Project where they
share their work with Weber State and John’s Hopkins
Universities.
42% of currently enrolled SME female students are Biology
majors.
BIOTECHNOLOGY
Biotechnology is a process of using information
gained from living organisms to develop
products.
This state-of-the-art research offers all of our
students some exciting new career choices as
we enter into the 21st century.
Our recent women graduates are
establishing themselves in the professional
workplace.
18% of currently enrolled SME female students
are Biotechnology majors.
CHEMISTRY/PHYSICAL
SCIENCE
Chemistry is the science that deals with the structure
and properties of substances and with the changes that
they go through. It is a foundation for many other
fields of scientific inquiry.
SLCC’s Chemistry Department encourages students to
participate in the American Chemical Society, where
they have received extensive national recognition.
The largest number of female SME graduates obtained
degrees in the Chemistry/Physical Science program.
HEALTH AND LIFTIME
ACTIVITIES
The Fitness Technician Program is growing in popularity as a major for SLCC’s female
students. The reason for this increased interest is their cutting-edge program that ties
fitness and medicine.
Develop qualified Personal Trainers to
work in the Fitness Industry
We…
Are changing the way the medical industry
interacts with the fitness industry through
Exercise Is Medicine (EIM).
Provide a solid exercise science foundation
for students transferring to four-year
institutions.
MATHEMATICS
The Mathematics Department serves approximately 9,000 students each semester,
offering a variety of 20 different Math courses to choose from.
Women’s interest in the
MATH major is growing.
Almost half of the faculty are
women.
Female faculty offer strong role
models.
Of all female graduates, 22%
have been MATH majors.
EDMT
Engineering Design/Manufacturing Technologies
SME offers a variety of engineering disciplines that are
always in high demand. These areas of study, once
thought of as non-traditional for women, include
mechanical, civil, piping, electronics, structural, and
industrial engineering.
Other schools within our college offer additional
technical degrees and certificates that provide exciting
new carrier alternatives for women.
SLCC’s Apprenticeship programs participate in the Utah Women in Trades organization to promote
women in the trades.

MESA/STEP
Math, Engineering, Science Achievement/Science Technology Engineering Program
The goal of MESA/STEP is to increase the number of females and
minority students who pursue college educations in STEM fields.
MESA/STEP
exposes young
women and
minority
students to the
sciences
Many of these
students
eventually join us
in our SLCC
community
They organize
high school
student activities
to encourage
interest in STEM
Girls between the ages of 12-17, from all around the state of Utah, join together to
learn about the sciences through a variety of hands-on activities.

EYH conferences are
offered to middle and
high school girls to
introduce them to a
variety of STEM
careers and encourage
them to pursue the
exploration of STEM.
EYH conferences
provide an
opportunity for girls
to engage with
successful career
women in STEM.
EHY conferences
promote interactions
with peers in hands-on
activities.
