The Utah Women in Higher Education Network (UWHEN) is part of a national group of networks that carry on the work of the ACE Women's Network at the American Council on Education (ACE). The SLCC Chapter of UHWEN, which began winter of 2015-16, was started to create an environment of collective empowerment for all women working in higher education at Salt Lake Community College and partnering institutions. The SLCC Chapter invites women of all backgrounds to engage professional development, networking, mentoring, discussion, and action on topics that are important to its members and provide opportunities to develop leadership skills and abilities. The SLCC Chapter has also been charged by President Deneece Huftalin to create opportunities for professional development for women from all levels of employment or leadership and join the ElevateHER Challenge at the State level.

The annual UWHEN Leadership Conference is an opportunity for Utah women in higher education to engage in discussions about leadership, growth and professional development.

This year, Weber State University will host the Utah Women in Higher Education Leadership Conference in Ogden on April 3, 2019. The SLCC Chapter hosts events each year such as the Presidential Luncheon, and events focused on elevating women in higher education.
