State Board of Community Colleges

The State of North Carolina has assigned the 58 public community colleges to the State Board of Community Colleges with full authority to adopt all policies, regulations and standards deemed necessary for operation of the North Carolina Community College System.

The State Board is responsible for the equitable distribution of funds and fiscal accountability, establishing state priorities and approving educational programs within the System.

The North Carolina Community College System, with administrative offices located in Raleigh, serves as a resource agency and administrative arm of the State Board.

The System Office provides support services and technical assistance for the community colleges, under the direction of the System President who is appointed by the State Board, and provides other services that would be difficult for an individual institution to address such as statewide data collection and reporting.
