Andrew is off to St. George, Utah
ANDREW WILSON, Salt Lake Community College / Visual Art & Design Department Professor has accepted a position at Utah Tech University in St. George, Utah. At SLCC since 2009, Andrew has worked in multiple roles; Department Coordinator, Web Design Specialization Rep, Professor, Student Art Showcase Chair, and in many, many, many other capacities.
The Visual Art & Design Department faculty wish Andrew and his family a fond farewell. We know that Andrew is looking forward to a new chapter in his career and we wish him the best!
From Associate Dean Bryan Griggs:
“Andrew Wilson has served as a key and influential full-time faculty member, specializing in the Web Design emphasis, for Salt Lake Community College’s Visual Art & Design Department. His faculty work over his many years of service has done much to shape the digital media with Web Design program offerings now in place. Andrew has consistently been genuine, open, quick-witted, and kind. His students respect and admire him, and his colleagues appreciate and value him. Andrew has always been generous in his contributions. Whether stepping up to serve on various committees or volunteering for multiple projects… Andrew is there. Andrew contributed numerous years in serving as the Department Coordinator for the Visual Art & Design Department. His level head and transparent and inclusive methods earned him the gratitude of those involved. His leadership makes a significant mark. As Andrew leaves Salt Lake Community College for other life ambitions… his absence will surely be felt. Nevertheless, his legacy stands as it is… with many being benefitted by his talents, intelligence, and accomplishments.”
From Associate Professor Virag White:
“The Visual Art & Design Department will not be the same without Andrew. Working with him on the Student Art Show for several years was great. He brought calmness into the chaos with his easygoing personality. I am sure students will feel the void he leaves with his departure. I wish him the best at Utah Tech University, and I hope that we can develop a relationship with the art department at his new school.”
From Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles:
“I don’t believe I’ve ever seen Andrew without a smile! Never was there a more easy going person. When Andrew was the VAD Coordinator he brought diplomatic professionalism to the table. Trying to keep everyone on task in a department meeting, well let’s just say, Andrew was good at herding cats! It will surely be difficult to replace Andrew as he has taken web design classes and built them into a stellar program at SLCC. Good luck Andrew! It’s pretty hot down there in St. George!”
INK would like to congratulate Andrew on his many successful years at Salt Lake Community College and the future years he will be spending at Utah Tech University! ~ Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles
