WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College has been selected as an Aspen Institute Roadmap to Excellence institution. Dr. Ervin V. Griffin, president, applied to the Aspen Institute's North Carolina Roadmap to Excellence project as part of an invitation to all 58 community colleges in the North Carolina Community College System (NCCS). Of the 58 community colleges, eight were selected to take part in this project.

Aspen states "Over the past decade, North Carolina's community colleges have collectively pursued student-focused reform and capacity-building strategies. Through collaborative efforts in partnership with Achieving the Dream, the Developmental Education Initiative, the Student Success Leadership Institute and Completion by Design, many of the state's community colleges have worked together to make significant advances in student outcomes while maintaining their long-standing commitment to open access."

This project will provide HCC with a comprehensive review in the areas of learning, completion/transfer, labor market and equitable outcomes feedback for the next steps in advancing models of excellence and improving student-learned outcomes success. Community partners in business, K-12 public school administration, community organizations, the college’s faculty, staff and students will be engaged in the project.

Dr. Griffin is committed to the project and has appointed Dean of Institutional Effectiveness, Planning and Assessment Dr. Adriane Leché , as the liaison/coordinator for the Aspen Institute project.
