Dr. D at table with UNC Charlotte Chancellor, sy

UNC Charlotte and Central Piedmont introduced 49erNext, a new co-admission transfer program for students in North Carolina during a special event on Oct. 3 in the UNC Charlotte Center City Building. The program provides a seamless pathway for students who wish to start a degree program at Central Piedmont and complete their education at UNC Charlotte.

During the event, Peggy and Bob Culbertson of Charlotte announced they were committing $1 million to Central Piedmont to provide scholarships for financially needy students. The college will use a significant portion of the gift to establish the Peggy and Bob Culbertson 49erNext Scholarship Program to assist students in the newly created program. The Culbertson gift also will fund scholarships for Central Piedmont students pursuing career-focused technical degrees and preparing to enter the workforce.
