What We Do

NC Teaching & Learning Hubs 

In an effort to further the shared mission of fostering student success across the state, the Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research, the NC Student Success Center, and Achieving the Dream (ATD) are committed to support full and part-time faculty, as well as staff educators, from North Carolina community colleges in an effort to build equity in learning and student success through Teaching and Learning Hubs. Our plans are to offer diverse sessions through multiple delivery methods so that all of our Hub institutions can find sessions that they want to and can participate in. 

Piedmont Teaching & Learning Hub

Through in-person, virtual and hybrid workshops, and seminars, the Piedmont Teaching and Learning Hub will help faculty learn about, adopt, test, and scale the evidence-based strategies to increase equitable student success. The Piedmont Hub is co-hosted by Davidson-Davie Community College (Grant Jolliff, co-director) and Forsyth Technical Community College (Kristin Redfield, co-director).  The Piedmont Hub affiliate colleges are Central Piedmont, Guilford, Montgomery, Randolph, Richmond, Rockingham, Rowan-Cabarrus, South Piedmont, and Stanly.
