Office of the President


Dr. Carol SpaldingRowan-Cabarrus Community College has spent more than 50 years serving Rowan and Cabarrus counties, ultimately educating nearly 650,000 individuals. Over time, the College has progressively evolved in response to our community’s workforce and economic development needs, annually serving more than 20,000 individuals on our seven campuses and sites across our two counties. The success stories of our local students and graduates demonstrate amazing commitment, sacrifice and dedication. At this time in our history, the work of Rowan-Cabarrus has never been more critical and the challenge our community faces has never been more pressing, complex or shared.

I firmly believe that education is the best investment anyone can make. It improves the lives of individuals, their families and the community. Ultimately, a more educated region will result in a stronger, more vibrant region. Now – more than ever – Rowan-Cabarrus needs your support to build a better tomorrow. Together we can strengthen our region by providing extraordinary opportunities for students and preparing graduates to live meaningful lives as active and contributing members of our community.

We believe Rowan-Cabarrus has a promise to fulfill- a promise exemplified by a regional mission and a vision for the future vitality of our community in Rowan and Cabarrus counties. We think we’re a part of the solution… and so are you. As we grow, adapt and anticipate the needs of students and the community, public and private investment is crucial. We must improve and update programs, laboratories and equipment; develop new programs aligned with emerging labor market demands; and increase student scholarships.

We appreciate your support in this worthy effort to improve our quality of life and to strengthen the future of our community.
