No... That's Charles Blvd. Charles Street is the road that crosses 10th where Kinko's is. They took that stop light down sometime recently.

PCC looking into expansion to Ayden - Daily Reflector

Quote:
AYDEN — Pitt Community College has shown expansions can lead to success.

After creating successful off-campus programs in Greenville and Farmville, Pitt Community College is looking into Ayden as the next township to receive services.

Expansion and outreach has become an important piece to the college, according to Sara Singleton, the director of off-campus programs and the evening and weekend college.

“We want to show the community we are the community’s college, not just Greenville and Winterville’s (college),” Singleton said.

The process of choosing a new location, then working to create and deliver services, is difficult and time consuming, but the result helps improve those in the community, according to Singleton.

Ayden Manager Steven Harrell agreed. The expansion will bring several benefits to the town of Ayden and its residents, he said.

“It would allow folks to not have to travel all the way over to Pitt Community College campus, particularly those who have transportation needs,” Harrell said. “By having it in town, potentially, if they live in the town limits, it will be close enough for them to walk to class.”

One of the early steps in the process is to gauge public interest in different services and classes offered by Pitt Community College.

“One of the first things we do is a needs assessment. We have had a survey out in Ayden for several weeks now that the town of Ayden has been very helpful in getting distributed, and we have had a large number of responses come back,” Singleton said.

The surveys ask residents what they would most like to see, such as job training, classes for fun, or for the creation and growth of “soft skills” such as communication and organization.

“What we see (in the responses) is that every town in this county is different and so we know that what may work in one place in the county may not be what another community needs,” Singleton said.

Singleton praised Ayden officials for their help in getting the word out about the surveys.

The town has been using social media and the Blackboard phone application located on the town’s homepage to spread the word, Harrell said.

The application allows for residents to be part of a mass phone call to help deliver information about the survey and other town events. Residents can sign up for the Blackboard application by clicking on the link on the town’s website homepage.

Along with surveys, Singleton has hosted interest and listening meetings. The first was at Ayden-Grifton High School.

“What we do at those meetings is I get a little more in-depth with those questions,” Singleton said.

Some programs that could be offered by Pitt Community College include working toward completion of a high school equivalency degree, certifications or job training.

Pitt Community College would be able to utilize free classroom space inside of the town’s arts and recreation building located on Lee Street, Harrell said.

This would allow town residents to simply walk to classes instead of relying on cars and catching rides with others.

The cost for attending classes off campus would be the same as attending those located on the Winterville main campus — $76 per credit hour. Classes such as English as a Second Language, literacy education and high school equivalency are free.

Class schedules can vary based on the class or the individual. Students have multiple options in terms of course length, Singleton said.

“If it is a curriculum class that leads towards a degree, we have various term lengths within our semester. Typically, the fall and the spring semesters are 16 weeks long and the summer is 10 weeks long. We do offer 14-, 10- and eight-week classes. We have also started offering six-week classes, and that’s just curriculum courses,” Singleton said.

Classes focused on improving or creating skills or earning a high school equivalency degree are self-paced and work around the student’s needs and schedule, she said.

“There’s a lot of variability,” Singleton said.

The Pitt Community College survey remains open on the town of Ayden’s website — Ayden — for residents to express their needs.
It would be nice to have multiple campuses. I'd also like to see something similar in Uptown Greenville.

This was in the campus Monthly email that the Provosts sends out. I found it interesting that this is a ugly old building on main campus across from the College of Business that they are going to use a mix of public & private funds to reuse. I'm not positive, but this could be the first use of public & private funds on main campus for something of this nature. Nice to see some forward thinking going on...

Finally, I am pleased that we are about to devote significant space to IEE (Innovation, Entrepreneurship and engagement) efforts. With a mix of private and public funding, we will adaptively reuse "Building 43" as a place where students, faculty, and staff can collide with their new ideas and run with them in teams (please see artist's rendering to the right). Students and faculty from business, education, engineering, the sciences, and the arts will have a place designed to accommodate these creative activities. Some of those ideas will be exceptional, even if a small portion of the total, and we will assist in spinning them off of the campus. Building 43, which will also house the Miller School, will be internally focused and once great ideas are identified there, they could be transferred to externally oriented spaces located on our Millennial Campus properties (in the warehouse district).

ECU's recent emphasis on innovation, entrepreneurship, and engagement is a campus movement that reaches every corner of our university community. I invite each and every one of you to participate in this exciting part of the University's mission. It will not be everyone's cup of tea, but everyone gets invited.

However, after multiple attempts to get any statement from Letchworth or Wall, no emails were returned to The East Carolinian.
If this doesnít scream ďcover upĒ, I donít know what does. Didnít Letchworth used to work for the Daily Reflector?

See the L-shaped building adjacent to Bate. When complete, it will frame in a particularly nice and visible (to 10th Street) portion of ECU.
