As Belk Center Executive Director and W. Dallas Herring Distinguished Professor, Dr. A.J. Jaeger, shares in her opening letter, “This report highlights recent Belk Center achievements in three key areas: fostering community college excellence, educating future leaders, and conducting actionable research. It also features perennial strategic initiatives like the Dallas Herring Lecture and the PACE campus climate assessment for community colleges. For the past 12 months, these diverse offerings—alongside our responses to COVID-19—have been synchronized to maximize the scope and impact of the Belk Center in North Carolina and beyond.” The report also highlights how the Belk Center has been examining the ways racial equity is, and should be, centered in all we do.
