Our first Awake58 virtual town hall will focus on the decision points facing college leaders, as well as statewide decision makers, about community college funding, the institutional side of CARES funding for post-secondary institutions, and more.
We will convene a 75-minute virtual town hall via Zoom on Monday, June 15 at 3:30 p.m. to get some answers.
Guest speakers include Kandi Deitemeyer, Central Piedmont CC President; Garrett Hinshaw, Catawba Valley CC President; Lawrence Rouse, Pitt CC President; David Baime, Senior VP, Government Relations and Policy Analysis, American Association of Community Colleges.
