North Carolina Central Expands Its Partnership With Vance-Granville Community College

North Carolina Central University, the historically Black educational institution in Durham, has entered into an agreement with Vance-Granville Community College in Henderson, North Carolina. The community college enrolls about 3,250 students and African Americans are one third of the student body.

Under the agreement, the department of human sciences at North Carolina Central will offer two bachelor’s degree programs on the Vance-Granville Community College campus for students who have completed an associate’s degree in applied science at the community college.

The university will provide faculty and support for the students in the bachelor’s degree programs and the community college will contribute classroom space, laboratories, and other campus resources. The new programs will be a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and a bachelor’s degree in family and consumer sciences with a concentration in childhood development and family relations.

Stelfanie Williams, president of Vance-Granville Community College, said that “we are proud to be expanding our successful partnership with North Carolina Central University to provide new opportunities for our graduates to continue their training as educators and earn a bachelor’s degree here in our community.”

Dr. Williams has led the community college since 2012. She is a graduate of Duke University and holds a master’s degree from Western Carolina University and an educational doctorate from North Carolina State University.
