CPCC students had a week off from classes from September 1 – 7 due to the Democratic National Convention, but some of our students decided to take advantage of the some of the opportunities to be a part of the Democratic National Convention.
On Tuesday, Sept. 4, eight students from the MAN UP and Communities In College programs (Timothy Graham, Sambou Kamissoko, Dazhanea Hurst, Cierra Grier, Kenneth Trewin, Carlos Gladden, Abram Miller, and Brice Agboglo) along with three CPCC staff members, attended the Congressional Black Caucus Institute’s interactive summit “Ufuture – A Summit for Innovative Young Thinkers,” held at Johnson C. Smith University. CPCC was the only community college represented among the other 18 four-year colleges and universities.
This interactive summit was hosted by acclaimed actors Alfre Woodard, Hill Harper and Nicole Ari Parker and included local and national elected officials, White House officials, educators and business leaders. The summit was designed as a forum to allow students a chance to interact with congressional members, local and regional leaders, and White House officials.
REMINDER: CPCC will be closed Saturday, Sept. 1 through Friday, Sept. 7 for the Labor Day holiday and the Democratic National Convention. All six CPCC campuses will be closed during this time.
Again, all campuses will be closed from Sept. 1-7. This means that all buildings, facilities and parking lots are inaccessible to the public (including employees & students). You will not be able to park at or enter any campus during this time.
For classes on Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday, Sept. 9, students should use student parking decks instead of surface parking lots for those two weekend days.
