Event description

Description

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.

You are encouraged to register for one of the follow-up workshops- January 24th at 10:15 AM in Russell 143 and again at 2:15 in Russell 142 or on January 25th at 10:15 in Russell 143 and again at 2:15 PM in Simon 101. Please be sure to register for the workshop of your choice, as seating is limited.

This presentation is sponsored by the Title III grant and is a Teaching & Learning sanctioned event worth 10 Faculty Reward points.
