History of CPCC
Since its beginning, the College has been a national pacesetter in education. Standouts on the CPCC roster include a Pulitzer Prize winner, a Metropolitan Opera star, an Olympic gold medalist, a Medal of Honor winner, a television actress, and a pro football player. Countless others — chefs, healthcare providers, technicians, real estate brokers, paralegals, firefighters, law enforcement officers, trades people, and others who serve our community — share CPCC’s proud tradition.
CPCC has been providing educational opportunities since 1963, the year that the North Carolina General Assembly passed the community college bill. From its inception, the College was innovative in its teaching methods. CPCC soon garnered national recognition for its individualized instruction and computer-assisted instruction. In 1970, the College was invited to join the prestigious League for Innovation in the Community College, and is still an active member.
Dr. Tony Zeiss, CPCC’s third president, has led the College since December 1992. He is devoted to the mission of CPCC and to serving students and the community through customized training and workforce development. Under his direction, CPCC became a multi-campus community college in 1996 with the conversion of the North Area Learning Center in Huntersville to the North Campus. Four other campuses subsequently opened; Levine Campus in 1998, the Harper Campus in 1999, the West Campus in 2001, and the Cato Campus in 2002. CPCC now has full-service campuses across Mecklenburg County.
CPCC has grown from a small College with a dozen programs serving 1,600 students to one with over 100 degree, diploma, and certificate programs serving approximately 70,000 people in an array of credit and noncredit offerings. The College is the county’s premier workforce development resource, offering its educational services throughout the area.
