2000s

Central Piedmont Community College entered the new millennium with big plans for the future. The school saw a lot of changes with the opening of Harris Campus and Cato Campus and the construction and acquisition of new buildings at all six campuses.

To address the changing needs of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community, new facilities such as the Layne-Trane Air Conditioning Lab, the James Turner Institute of Welding Technology and the Joe Hendrick Center for Automotive Technology were built.

In addition to award-winning buildings, CPCC was also honored throughout this decade for its academics and leadership, as in 2002 when it was selected as the Community College of the Year and Dr. Zeiss was chosen as the Community College President of the Year.
