Administrative Assistant Support Council (AASC)

Today’s administrative professionals need to be skilled in leadership, project management, technology and writing skills, along with advanced communication, critical thinking, budget and finance knowledge and work/life balance. The AASC is a community of SLCC administrative assistants and secretary III’s. New employees become members of the AASC on their first day of employment!


The SLCC Chapter of UWHEN invite women of all backgrounds, and all levels of employment or leadership to engage in professional development, networking, mentoring, discussion, and engage in topics that are important to its members. Our vision is to create an environment of collective empowerment for all women working in higher education at Salt Lake Community College and partnering institutions. We have adopted the ACE Women’s Network mission to advance women’s leadership on higher education campuses through the following (IDEALS):

  • Identifying women leaders.
  • Developing women’s leadership abilities.
  • Encouraging the use of leadership abilities.
  • Advancing women’s careers.
  • Linking women to other women and mentors.
  • Supporting women in mid- and executive-level positions.

UWHEN accomplishes its mission by:

  • Maintaining a network of women in higher education administration, faculty, and staff roles.
  • Providing professional development opportunities for leadership preparation, development, and support of women in higher education.
  • Promoting the visibility, recognition, and advancement of women in higher education leadership.
  • Addressing barriers and issues affecting career progression of women in higher education.

Please join our email list for updates on events such as the UWHEN Leadership Conference, The President’s Luncheon, professional development opportunities, and information that support women in higher education.
