Dr. Kandi W. Deitemeyer began her tenure as the fourth president of Central Piedmont Community College in 2017.

Her career has spanned 25 years in higher education, with 23 of those serving in community college systems in North Carolina, Kentucky and Florida.
“I believe everything we do at Central Piedmont Community College is life-changing,” Dr. Deitemeyer has said. “When someone asks me what I do, I typically reply, ‘I am in the life-transformation business.’ After 25 years in higher education, I’ve seen the impact our colleges have on individuals, families and communities. CPCC is the hope many of our students are seeking. Hope of a better job, better wage, better life, and better provisions for their family.”
Currently, Dr. Deitemeyer serves on the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Colleges Executive Council of Board of Trustees and is an active member of the North Carolina Association of Community College Presidents. She is a Rotarian and serves on many community and philanthropic boards, including the Charlotte Chamber, Charlotte Regional Collaborative for a Global Economy, Charlotte Regional Partnership, Leading on Opportunity Council, and the League for Innovation.
