“Many people do not realize that the Erma Byrd Higher Education Center supports education from associate’s through master’s degrees. With classrooms for face-to-face instruction, computer labs for online work, and collaboration rooms for group work, the center puts education right in our hands,” stated Dr. Susan Williams, Director of Concord University’s Beckley location.
The HEC’s purpose is to support the region’s students. The center has a library and computer labs that are open until 10 p.m. so that students have a convenient and
safe place to study and to meet, Dr. Williams explained.
