Welcome From The Director

Rudy M. Molina, Jr., Ph. D.

Dear students, parents, alumni, and friends,

I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2015 SALT Center Journal. The theme this year is “Expanding for the Future,” and our future includes you.

We are two years into our SALT Center Tomorrow Campaign, a fundraising effort with three key initiatives: Innovation, Access, and Space. This year’s Journal will highlight the progress that we’ve made in all areas of the campaign, most notably in the area of space.

We are excited to announce that our home, the Patricia A. Bartlett Building, will be renovated and expanded thanks to a $2.7 million gift from long-time friends of the program, Patricia and Bruce Bartlett, along with the generous contributions of other donors. While our amazing facility has served us well for 15 years, we have outgrown its current capacity. The goal of this project is to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

The future of the SALT Center is bright, and the upcoming expansion means more than just additional square footage – it represents our ever-growing commitment to supporting students who learn differently.

In this publication, you will read about our students, our team, and our alumni, as well as view architectural renderings of the new and improved Patricia A. Bartlett Building. Please join us in celebrating more than 30 years of student success, and thank you for being a part of our future!

Warmest regards,

Rudy M. Molina, Jr., Ph.D.
