Event description



This is a special session for Deans, Chairs, Directors, and Coordinators.

There is a gap between current levels of educational attainment and the projected demand for educated workers in North Carolina. The majority of new and future jobs will require education and training beyond high school, but just 42% of North Carolina’s prime working-age (18-64) adults had an associate’s degree or higher in 2016. The Community College system is the largest provider of postsecondary education and training in the state and will play a major role in moving the state toward any postsecondary attainment goal. This presentation will provide information specific to Pitt Community College with a focus on the geographic area of Pitt County, as well as neighboring counties of Martin, Lenoir, Edgecombe, and Beaufort. Specific topics will include: trends in Fall enrollments (2001-2015), demographic characteristics of enrolled students, transfer student enrollments and performance, local high school graduate intentions, and service area population projections and implications for future enrollment.

This presentation has been sponsored by Title III funding.
