Leadership Program Starts Third Year Sept. 9

Professional Development Series to Focus on Leadership Throughout Campus

WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will kick off the third year of its Community College Leadership Preparation Program Sept. 9 with a panel presentation on academic support services.

Started in 2013 to provide employees with a new opportunity for professional development, the series has featured such speakers as N.C. Community College System President Scott Ralls and Pitt County Schools Superintendent Ethan Lenker sharing insight on their paths to leadership and offering advice to those pursuing leadership positions.

PCC Human Resources Generalist Amanda Wells says the 2015-16 version of the program will differ from the previous two by focusing on leadership throughout campus.

“This year, the speaker series will take form as a leadership dialogue, focusing on leadership from multiple areas of Pitt Community College,” Wells said. “This was designed to create a more engaging experience and increase participant's awareness of the daily operation and functioning purpose of institutional units at PCC as well as the leadership required for those areas.”

After next month’s presentation, Wells said future sessions will focus on the teaching/learning process, community engagement, PCC’s budget, campus safety and student development services.

Employees who attend at least four of the six one-hour sessions to be offered during the current academic year can earn a certificate of completion, she said.
