United Way is excited to announce that our organization has been selected as the Thaynes Center at Salt Lake Community College’s recipient of the 2012 Committed Community Partner Award from Utah Campus Compact. The purpose of the Utah Campus Compact Awards is to recognize the work of outstanding faculty, staff, students, and community partners at the statewide level.
This award recognizes an organization that:

  • “Strengthens community involvement at our institution”
  • “Provides meaningful service and learning opportunities for students”
  • “Enhance their agency’s mission/programs/goals by partnering with our institution”

United Way is very happy to receive this award and proud of our work with the Thaynes Center.  As a recipient the United Way of Salt Lake will be honored at the Utah Campus Compact Annual Conference on Civic Engagement at Utah Valley University on April 2, 2012. Our colleagues in service-learning and community engagement from across the state will be in attendance.  We are very excited and honored by this recognition.
