The need for a technical education center was recognized in 1960, when Salisbury-Rowan community leaders, working through the chamber of commerce, conducted a survey of manpower requirements in the area. Results of the survey provided the basis for their request that the State Board of Education establish an industrial education center in Rowan County. The people of Rowan County gave strong support to the idea by approving a $500,000 bond issue to purchase land and to finance construction of the first building. When the center first opened its doors in 1963, it offered seven pre-employment education programs and a variety of short courses for adult.

Today, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College prepares individuals for careers in approximately 40 programs of study in business, health and public services, and industrial and engineering technologies. The college also offers the Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts and Associate in Science degree programs for those students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university.

In June 2010, RCCC opened the first LEED building at the college on the North Campus. In November 2010 Rowan County citizens approved a $12 million bond referendum for capital improvement projects on the North Campus as a commitment to keep the college facilities updated to provide the highest quality and relevant instruction and training for our communities.
