In light of COVID-19 health directive clarifications now provided by the Mecklenburg County Public Health Department -- and adhering to our stringent pandemic safety protocols -- Central Piedmont will move some career and technical education classes back to on-campus, in-person delivery as of January 14. Check your student email for details.
Class sections that began the semester as online or hybrid will continue online until Feb. 2, at which time the college will provide further guidance. Students with questions about the mode of their classes – online or on-campus – should contact their instructors directly and check Blackboard.
The safety and well-being of Central Piedmont students, employees, and visitors is the most important concern to the college. Central Piedmont provides many services to create an atmosphere that promotes safety while remaining conducive to learning.

Central Piedmont Critical Alert
Central Piedmont uses many communication channels to alert students, employees, and other interested community members in the event of an emergency or dangerous situation. The college sends out messages in case of a campus emergency; to give timely warning of a crime; to warn about severe weather; or to make an important announcement.
The Office of Emergency Management implements programs and projects in emergency and disaster planning, training, mitigation, response, and recovery. The mission of the office is to create a comprehensive emergency management program for Central Piedmont Community College in order to save lives, protect property, promote continuity of operations, and reduce the overall effects of large-scale disasters. The Office also acts as the primary liaison between the college and outside government emergency management agencies.
If you want to report behavior that is concerning or disruptive to the Central Piedmont community, contact the Care Team. The Care Team is comprised of members from departments across the college and its purpose is to provide a systematic response to such reports.
Annual Security Report
The annual security report – released each year – contains three years of campus crime statistics and is designed to provide essential information concerning safety and security on Central Piedmont campuses. The report also provides emergency response information that may help you to protect yourself and others should an emergency occur.
