The Presidents’ Academy -- a partnership between the Belk Center, NC State College of Education, N.C. Association of Community College Presidents, N.C. Community College System, Achieving the Dream and Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program -- provides ongoing support to community college presidents to help them strengthen their institution’s performance.
Dallas Herring Lecture
W. Dallas Herring was instrumental in the creation of the North Carolina Community College System. His work widened access to and democratized higher education for thousands of North Carolinians. NC State honors Herring’s legacy by hosting the annual Dallas Herring Lecture. It invites top community college leaders to speak on urgent and emerging topics, framing how to address the issues and proposing a path forward.
A primary focus of our work at the Belk Center is to support community college leaders and educators in making evidence-based decisions that advance equitable student outcomes. The purpose of this guide is to curate a hub of information for community colleges interested in valuable resources that can continue to inform decisions that support student success in North Carolina.
