Institution Information

Central Piedmont has provided educational opportunities since 1963; the year the North Carolina General Assembly passed the state community college bill. Opening as a fully integrated institution under the direction of Dr. Richard H. Hagemeyer, the founding president, the college combined the programs of the Central Industrial Education Center (CIEC) on Elizabeth Avenue and Mecklenburg College on Beatties Ford Road. Central Piedmont has grown from a small college with a single campus and a dozen programs serving 1,600 students. Today, with six campuses and two centers, the college offers nearly 300 degree, diploma and certificate programs plus an array of non-credit offerings. Central Piedmont enrolls approximately 56,000 students annually in for-credit programs with additional continuing education and basic skills courses, making it one of the largest colleges in the Carolinas. The college engages approximately 256,000 individuals each year through various programs, services, events and performances. Through all of its growth, the college has become Mecklenburg County’s primary workforce development resource, thanks to the vision and leadership of its presidents.
