Meredith College and Durham Technical Community College (DTCC) officials signed a memorandum of understanding formalizing a transfer partnership between the two schools. The signing was held Monday, Nov. 12, 2012, at DTCC.
Meredith College President Jo Allen and DTCC President William G. “Bill” Ingram signed the agreement. Other college officials including DTCC Dean and Head of the Department of Arts, Sciences, and University Transfer Program Thomas Gould and Meredith College Vice President for Academic Planning and Programs Liz Wolfinger attended.
