College Profile: Edgecombe Community College
Edgecombe Community College is dedicated to fulfilling the educational, training, and cultural needs of the community.
Steady growth and expanding impact have characterized Edgecombe Community College as it has evolved from one small building in 1968 into a multi-campus institution with campuses in Tarboro and Rocky Mount, North Carolina. The college helped meet the educational and training needs of about 9,500 individuals in our community last year. Throughout, our strength is and will remain putting the needs of students first.
Edgecombe Community College is located in the eastern part of North Carolina in Edgecombe County approximately 75 miles east of Raleigh. The county is rural with a majority of the land used for farming. During the past two decades farm employment has declined due to mechanization, and employment in the manufacturing sector has increased.
ECC is one of the 58 colleges that make up the North Carolina Community College System. The System was approved by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1963 and is provided for in the General Statutes of North Carolina, Chapter 115-A. General supervision of the system falls under the State Board of Community Colleges.
ECC’s main campus is located on 120 acres 2.5 miles south of Tarboro and comprises nine buildings. ECC also operates a campus in the Edgecombe County portion of Rocky Mount. This campus covers one city block and comprises two buildings. The college’s newest building, the Cosmetic Arts Building, opened on the Tarboro campus in summer 2008, the final step in an extensive renovation of cosmetic arts on both campuses. The new
8,000-square-foot building includes classroom and lab space for some 90 students.
Through a wide selection of programs and courses, ECC seeks to improve both the quality of life and the economic outlook of its students and area residents. With classes in subjects from small business management to electrical blueprints, ECC is equipping its students with practical skills that enable them to excel in their careers, homes, and communities. With ECC’s flexible scheduling, the success that comes with higher education is a little easier to achieve. Classes for traditional and non-traditional students are available during the day, evening, and online to accommodate individual needs.
