Biographical / Historical
The Charlotte Area Educational Consortium (CAEC), was established in 1969 for the purpose of fostering attainment of the highest level of collegiate and university education for the Charlotte Metrolina area. The organization encourages the sharing of resources and energies among institutions and seeks to generate creative ideas for the most effective use of human and other resources available among the institutions. Originally comprised of nine institutions, the consortium includes 23 colleges and universities (as of January, 1999): Anson Community College, Barber-Scotia College, Belmont Abbey College, Catawba College, Catawba Valley Community College, Central Piedmont Community College, Cleveland Community College, Davidson College, Gardner-Webb University, Gaston College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (associate member), Johnson C. Smith University, Lenoir-Rhyne College, Livingstone College, Mitchell Community College, Pfeiffer University, Queens College, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, Stanly Community College, UNC Charlotte, University of South Carolina at Lancaster, Wingate University, Winthrop University, and York Technical College. Among the programs offered by the CAEC is an inter-institutional exchange during the fall and spring semesters for undergraduate students enrolled in Charlotte-area colleges and universities. Under this program, a full-time undergraduate at one of the participating institutions may take a course not offered at the school in which he is enrolled at one of the other participating institutions.
