A proposal to change how community colleges are funded is exciting business leaders and educators across North Carolina and around the country.

The North Carolina Community College System recently unveiled its visionary new funding model, Propel NC.

This groundbreaking initiative set to revolutionize the way community colleges operate is now making its way through the legislature.

This new funding model focuses on workforce sectors with incentives for high-demand, high-wage jobs.

Recently, I sat down with NC Chamber CEO Gary Salamido and N.C. Community College System President Dr. Jeff Cox to talk about why they are excited about Propel NC and what it means for North Carolina’s businesses and economy.

Take a look.
