That was the goal of a meeting today at ECU in Greenville. Presidents and chancellors from various North Carolina universities and community colleges took part in the leadership forum. Issues like affordability and workforce challenges were discussed. Erskine Bowles, President of the UNC system and Martin Lancaster, President of our state's community college system, talked about why forums like these are so important. University and community college leaders also discussed the importance of added on line courses for working students.
