College’s trustees convene Monday

Mar. 16, 2013 @ 10:50 AM

The Vance-Granville Community College’s Board of Trustees will hold its bimonthly meeting Monday night at 7 p.m.

During the meeting, matters pertaining to the college’s 2014-2019 strategic plan are expected to be disused.

Currently, a Vanguard Vision Committee, comprised of 30 staff members from VGCC, has been using Dr. Stelfanie William’s “five big ideas” model as the framework for the upcoming plan.

During the trustees’ last meeting, the future of a nursing program partnership between VGCC and N.C. A&T University was recognized.

In early February, the agreement was signed by leaders from both schools, allowing graduates of VGCC to transition more easily into A&T’s four-year nursing degree program.

During an interview with the Dispatch in early March, Williams discussed a future project with local solar panel manufacturer Semprius. Information regarding the possible partnership, still in the early sages of development, is also expected during the meeting.

The trustees meeting will be held on the school’s main campus and is open to the public.
