The SLICE Program is designed for students who are passionate about a community issue and would like to take on a leadership role to address that issue. Up to $500 can be provided for the student initiative, giving them the resources to make a meaningful impact in their community. Participants develop partnerships with members of the community, other students, staff, and faculty and gain skills in leadership, communication, collaboration, and social responsibility.
Some examples of SLICE programs include Mental Health Awareness Day, donation drives, and funds to purchase cameras for an after school program in South Salt Lake.
Funding for a club’s civic engagement effort is available through Associated Students of Westminster (ASW) as well as other grants on campus. If all funding options have been exhausted, the Dumke Center program director will review a club’s application. However, approval is not guaranteed.
