Community Colleges in N.C.: What History Can Tell Us about Our Future

Record #:
Historically, the community college system developed to provide the state with a qualified work-force to fill manufacturing jobs beginning with Buncombe County Junior College in 1928. Having been organized into a state-wide system in 1963 under the Community College Act, this network of institutions faced contemporary problems of changing economic demands throughout the early 2000s. The author presents the history of the community college system to try and anticipate how this institution will need to adapt to future developments within the state's evolving economy.
