Celebrating 50 Years

50-clean Fifty years ago, Rowan-Cabarrus opened its doors to a new way of educating in Rowan and Cabarrus counties. Fifty years later we are still making a difference in the lives of those who reach out to us with their educational goals. We have expanded our one campus facility to seven training and education centers along our way, serving over 20,000 students annually. We are proud to launch our year-long sequence of special events and projects to celebrate our 50 years of service to our communities!

A series of activities and celebrations will be scheduled throughout the college and in the community during 2013.

“Wherever you want to go, Rowan-Cabarrus can help get you there. Our dedicated and passionate faculty and staff are here to lead the way, and all those who embark on such a journey lead the way for themselves, their families and many others,” said Spalding.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has spent the last fifty years serving citizens, business, and industry in Rowan and Cabarrus counties. The college offers a wide-variety of programs to meet the needs of a diverse student population with respect to age, life-style, academic achievement, and employment background.

“As the college celebrates our 50th anniversary in 2013, we want to thank the community for its support over the last 50 years,” said Spalding. “The community events that we are hosting this year are for our students, faculty, staff and community. Join us in celebrating our history and your community college.”
