Utah State University’s Moab campus will offer several new programs over the next few years that cater to the local population’s economic and workforce needs, according to USU Marketing Manager Loren Miller.
Most of the programs, which include degrees and certificates in career and technical concentrations, will be housed in a new building on Aggie Boulevard in southern Moab. The groundbreaking for the new facility is planned for early summer, said Miller.
“It is incredibly important for this community to be able to have a technical college offering,” said Stephanie Dahlstrom, Career and Technical Education (CTE) coordinator at USU Moab. “There are technical colleges throughout he State of Utah, and now USU Moab is serving that role in Grand County. If people want to change careers or learn a new trade, they don’t have to leave town to do so.”
USU Moab has offered a building construction program to high school students locally, and the program will soon expand to allow enrollment by community members.
