Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute


In 1964, CCC&TI opened its doors as Caldwell Technical Institute. The college first began offering classes in 1966 in health occupations and adult basic education at a temporary site located in the Dulatown community. By fall 1967, new facilities opened and hosted some 260 curriculum students. The college continued to grow and expand, adding college transfer courses to its offerings in 1969, officially becoming "Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute" the following year. Since the college's humble beginnings in the early 1960's, CCC&TI has grown by leaps and bounds, adding facilities to its Caldwell Campus including a job training center, increased classroom space and buildings, the Broyhill Civic Center, the John A. Forlines Building, The Broyhill House, the Transportation and Public Service Campus, and the Faye. A. Broyhill Building which houses the Appalachian State University Center. CCC&TI has also added new facilities in Watauga County and offerings for students in that area continue to grow. Today, CCC&TI offers hundreds of day and evening courses as well as online courses designed to fit any schedule or lifestyle. Students may choose from curriculum programs, a variety of corporate and continuing education courses, and adult education options. The college serves as a state and national model in offering a seamless education with a high school, community college and university presence all on the same property. Through cooperative efforts with the public school system and widespread support from the community, the Caldwell Campus also houses the innovative Caldwell Early College High School and Career Center Middle College. Celebrating more than 50 years of service, CCC&TI continues to make strides as a regional and state educational leader. College Presidents Dr. H. Edwin Beam, 1964-1984; Interim 1994-1995 Dr. Eric B.
