History of the Wasatch Campus

Park City Education Center

On January 6, 1993 Utah Valley Community College classes began at the Park City education Center. The location was the second and third floors of the historic Park City High School building. The Center offered a variety of 22 credit and 14 non-credit courses, including environmental law, business writing, hot air ballooning, business graphics, psychology, American heritage, and commercial truck driving.

"We chose courses that reflected what the community is most interested in having," said Barbara von Diether, the new director of the center.

"We have chosen Summit County as our newest home because it is one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding counties in the state, and because of its proximity to a number of adjacent communities in need of access to college programs and services." - President Kerry Romesburg

Heber Valley Education Center

Landowner and developer, George Johnson, had offered UVSC a piece of land in Park City at the Star Pointe Ranch for their new campus, but the plan he submitted was turned down by the Board of Regents. However, this setback did not deter UVSC in its plans to build a campus in the Wasatch area. They next began considering Heber City as a location for Wasatch Campus. Winter semester classes began at the Heber Valley Education Center on January 4, 1995. Classes offered included Financial Accounting, Small Business Management, Microcomputer Applications, College Writing I and 2, Intro to Environmental Tech, Cond/Basic Fire inspections, Personal/Community Health, Intermediate Algebra, Western Dance, Scuba Diving I, First Year Spanish, and Basic Speech.
