For years, North Carolina was known for its emphasis on higher education but budget cuts by the legislature have called that impression into question. Meanwhile, some look at the cost of college and view it as an overpriced, unsustainable endeavor that doesn’t really prepare graduates for the job market. Clearly, public perception of the value of college has shifted. Area college presidents share their views of the value, challenges and future of higher education.

Guests
Dr. Philip Dubois - Chancellor of UNC Charlotte  

Dr. Carol Quillen - President of Davidson College

Dr. Ronald Carter - President of Johnson C. Smith University 

Dr. Tony Zeiss - President of Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC)
