The Central Campus will host the 2013 CMS Summer Institute June 19 through 28. Hundreds of CMS educators will be on-site to attend a series of trainings, lectures and guest speakers. As a result, there will be an increased number of cars on campus utilizing student and employee parking areas.
During this time, we ask CPCC employees and students allot more time to finding parking at Central Campus. And, as you go about your day, if you notice any CMS attendees who appear lost or confused, please serve as a positive ambassador for our College and offer them assistance.

Close to 950 students expected to “march,” receive their college degrees, high school diplomas & GEDs
Central Piedmont Community College will host its commencement ceremonies today. Almost 950 students are expected to “march” and receive their college degrees, high school diplomas and GEDs throughout the day’s festivities.
During the College Graduation Ceremony later in the day, CPCC will graduate its largest class in its 50-year history. While 700 students plan to march during the 7 p.m. ceremony, more than 1,900 students were eligible to graduate this year. This is a significant increase from the 128 graduates the college had at its first commencement ceremony in 1964. (Participants at this ceremony were students who started programs at other institutions and finished at the newly-formed CPCC.)
Since CPCC holds only one graduation ceremony per year, 2012 summer and fall semester graduates will be participating in the college’s ceremonies as well.
Adult High School/GED/Pathways to Careers Graduation at 11 a.m.
The college will kick off its commencement exercises with its Adult High School, GED and Pathways to Careers student graduation ceremony. While more than 725 students from across Mecklenburg County were eligible to participate, only 250 are expected to “march” during the event. Mr. Tony Zeiss, president of CPCC, will be the guest speaker.
College Graduation Ceremony at 7 p.m.
Following the Adult High School and GED student graduation ceremony, CPCC’s undergraduate students will take the stage to receive their college degrees.
During the evening’s festivities, Allan C. Golston, president of the United States Program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will address this year’s graduates and CPCC will honor Alain S. Miatudila Sr. with the 2013 Richard H. Hagemeyer Educational Advancement Award and James R. Worrell Sr. with the Distinguished Service Award.
WHEN: Thursday, May 16
11 a.m. – Adult High School/GED/Pathways to Careers students

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is offering “Writing for Mass Media” (JOU216), a college-transfer journalism class, at the WTVI-PBS Charlotte television station for the first time starting in August.
Writing for Mass Media covers reporting, writing and editing for print, Web, radio, television, public relations and advertising media. The course transfers as a college elective and is part of the Mass Communication/ Journalism pre-major.
JOU216 will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:15 a.m. to 1:05 p.m. at the television station starting Aug. 15. ENG111 is the prerequisite course for JOU216. WTVI-PBS Charlotte is located at 3242 Commonwealth Ave.
“JOU216 is one of the college’s journalism classes that teaches reporting skills through hands-on, ‘real world’ assignments,” explained Elizabeth Rogers, CPCC journalism instructor. “Offering the class at WTVI serves to strengthen and enrich those important and authentic learning experiences.”
Over the summer, CPCC will renovate a large space at WTVI, transforming it into a “smart classroom,” with up to 25 computer work stations.
