This brochure was created to promote the new Conference Center on the Greenwood campus. It states that this “is a unique achievement of cooperation between business and industry and technical education” that was “constructed solely from corporate and private donations without the use of state funding….”
These brochures describe PTC’s transfer agreements and courses available for transfer to a four-year college or university. One flyer also promotes the joint admissions program that existed between Lander University and PTC, a precursor of today’s 2+2 agreements currently available to students in several programs of study. Students who took advantage of this program were also able to take concurrent classes at Lander while studying at PTC.
Many faculty, staff, and administrative officers at PTC have contributed to their disciplines through research and writing. Others have earned doctoral-level degrees while employed at the college. The library holds copies of several dissertations written by college employees, as well as books that faculty members have edited, written, or to which they have contributed chapters.
Laurens was the first county to have its own “center,” which opened in 1991 with Abbeville, Edgefield, and Newberry following in 1995, and McCormick and Saluda in 1998. As indicated in these photographs, the centers were modest in size, but they would grow as the college expanded its available programs. More to come on county campuses…
