Boone, Edgar J.; Vaughan, George B.
This is a study of selected counties in the Community College Service Areas of Beaufort County Community College, College of The Albemarle, Halifax Community College, Martin Community College, Roanoke-Chowan Community College, and Vance-Granville Community College in North Carolina. The purpose of this study was to provide an assessment of the community college programs offered and the service needs of citizens, provide realignment options in the six community college's service areas to maximize educational and training resources, and recommend realignment that would better serve the citizens in the seven counties. The methods used to obtain information include: (1) a comprehensive demographic study of Warren, Northampton, Bertie, Washington, Tyrrell, Gates, and Dare counties; (2) a study of the economies of the seven counties; and (3) an analysis and assessment of curriculum and continuing education courses and program offerings of the six community colleges in the seven counties. Recommendations include: (1) centers should be established where none exist in Gates, Northampton, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties; (2) the centers in Bertie and Warren counties should be upgraded; and (3) the General Assembly of North Carolina appropriate the funds required to build of upgrade these centers, as well as the campus in Dare County. Appended are data on county and colleges, maps, projections, schedules of meetings and public hearings, and service area study recommendations. (JA)
