President's MessageHear from the President of Dixie Tech
Being involved in education, I can’t help but love the back to school season each year. There’s a certain energy in the air that gets me excited for our students and the many wonderful opportunities they will have in our community. Due to the accelerated nature of our curriculum at Dixie Technical College, and thanks to our cohort model, we get several chances to experience this energizing optimism each year…and I love it!
Students at Dixie Technical College, Utah Tech University, and the Washington County School District are all gearing up to push through the hard work ahead. Education involves a lot of hard work, but the payoff is outstanding. At Dixie Tech, the culmination of that hard work means a greater career with the stability and security that come with it.
An Exceptional Identity
At the start of this school year, there is something else I’m excited about, and that’s our updated look at Dixie Tech. A lot of careful thought went into every aspect of the design, from the fonts to the logo and everything in between. I really wanted to ensure that our visual identity was aligned with our mission, our vision, and our core values.
We train students to master essential skills they will take directly to the workforce, enabling them to support their families, strengthen the community, and contribute to local industry while advancing their careers. That’s our mission. Our new design embraces minimalism, straight lines, and a somewhat condensed font to visually reinforce the direct, accelerated education students receive at Dixie Tech.
In our logo, the greater than (>) symbol is highlighted, and plays a major role in our designs, indicating the greater careers that await our students as they graduate and enter the workforce ready to contribute. I’m proud of what we’ve created, and I’m proud of what we do here each and every day. As you see our updated visual identity throughout the community, I hope you feel that same sense of pride.
An Exceptional Education
Dixie Tech provides industry-focused higher education through programs designed to quickly and affordably teach marketable skills. These programs are overseen and taught by an exceptional group of instructors in collaboration with our local industry partners. Our students spend time with them every day, receiving hands-on training and practicing the skills they need to be successful in the workforce.
At Dixie Tech, our students do more than study plumbing in a textbook, they become plumbers. They do more than learn about welding in a lecture, they become welders. This is true across all 25 of our essential programs. And that’s due to the exceptional instruction they receive from our incredible instructors, all of whom have a wealth of industry experience.
An Exceptional Experience
I want every student to graduate Dixie Technical College with the skills they need to establish themselves in great careers. Time and time again, the feedback I hear from current and former students is that their time at Dixie Tech was well spent, and that they had an exceptional experience.
