Central Piedmont Community College


Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is a large community college in Charlotte, NC.  Named Central Piedmont Community College by statute and commonly known as CPCC or Central Piedmont, its more than 70,000 students make it the largest community college in the North Carolina Community College System.

The school was founded in 1963; it is the result of a merger between Mecklenburg College and the Central Industrial Education Center.  Now the College consists of six satellite campuses and an extensive "Virtual Campus", all in the Charlotte Metro area.

In 2012, US President Barack Obama invoked CPCC in his State of the Union Address.
