RALEIGH (February 23, 2022) – North Carolina’s community colleges don’t help students just in the classroom.
They also provide students with the support they need to make college work. The colleges know many of their students have children or a full-time job to perform at the same time they try to earn a degree or credential.
“Child care. Transportation. Connection to services in the local community,” Thomas Stith III, President of the NC Community College System, says in the accompanying video.
“These are the wraparound services that our community colleges provide to our students to ensure that their educational experience is as supportive as possible.”
