According to a press release from CCCC, which serves Lee, Chatham and Harnett counties, Niche’s rankings “provide a real-life view of what it’s like to attend a specific school” and utilize data from the United States Department of Education, reviews from students, parents and alumni and more in determining rankings of the state’s 58 community colleges.
CCCC leaders applauded the achievement.
“CCCC understands our responsibility in helping our students successfully navigate our systems so they can effectively and efficiently achieve their career goals,” said CCCC President Dr. Lisa Chapman. “I am honored to work every day with a great team that consistently strives to improve how we serve our students and our communities and I appreciate the recognition of their good work.”
“Central Carolina is a world class leader in community college education. Our faculty and staff truly care about the success of our students, and our strong focus on improving student learning helps strengthen our local workforce. This is truly a special place,” added Dr. Brian S. Merritt, the college’s chief academic officer and vice president of learning and workforce development.
