About Carteret Community College

Carteret Community College offers opportunities for lifelong learning through high quality traditional and distance learning teaching, training, support, and enrichment with the intended purpose of improving the quality of life for all citizens of Carteret County and eastern North Carolina. (Revised by the Board of Trustees, May 2012)


The mission of Carteret Community College aligns with the purpose of North Carolina community colleges as stated in GS 115D – 1. That is, to offer “courses of instruction in one or more of the general areas of two-year college parallel, technical, vocational, and adult education programs. . . . and of basic, high school level, academic education needed in order to profit from [such] education.” Responsive to the needs of local business and industry, the College offers occupational training programs, including those designed to support tourism, marine occupations, and the legal and business professions. Unique to our service area are the Colleges programs in Allied Health, aquaculture, marine manufacturing and service, photography, and interior design.


At the same time, the College contributes to the personal, social, and cultural growth of local citizens, and provides interested students with courses which transfer to senior institutions. Over 10,000 local citizens use our facilities each year for entertainment, seminars, and public meetings. Through the system-to-system articulation agreement, students can attain the first TWO years of college at low cost, then transfer to any of the State’s universities.

The College is committed both to the open-door philosophy and to student learning success. It recognizes that some individuals need to enhance their academic skills before they can achieve their educational goals. Therefore, the College maintains a system of mandatory academic skills testing and placement, allowing students to gain effective academic skills prior to beginning their chosen programs of study.

Performance goals of the College are listed annually in the College Planning Document and are assessed through state-wide performance measures and the College’s Institutional Effectiveness Plan. In addition to the mission, the College operates according to the guiding principles of customer focus, continuous improvement and teamwork.

The College vision is based on the pursuit of excellence in four dimensions:

  1. An Excellent Learning College.
  2. An Excellent Place to Work.
  3. An Excellent Resource for Workforce Development and Quality of Life.
  4. An Excellent Steward of the Public Trust.
