Since its founding in 1967, Edgecombe Community College has been committed to fulfilling the education, training, and cultural needs of the Edgecombe County community and surrounding areas.
With campuses in Tarboro and Rocky Mount and classes online, the College serves about 8,000 individuals annually in its two-year degree, diploma, certificate, and continuing education programs. Excellent teaching and learning coupled with student achievement have characterized Edgecombe Community College throughout its history.
In January 2020, the new Center for Innovation on the Tarboro campus opened for classes. This facility will enable Edgecombe Community College to better develop and sustain a skilled manufacturing workforce. The Center for Innovation will provide high school and adult student populations with hands-on access to the latest technologies and practices found in advanced manufacturing today.
