The Central Carolina Community College 2015-2019 Strategic Plan declare "Learning First" as the primary institutional goal. All faculty and staff are empowered as educators, committed to responsibility for the learning process. In alignment with this plan, Program Directors are a critical part of the college's leadership charged to help maximize student learning and access by engaging students as full partners in their success. The primary purpose of the Department Chair/Program Director, in addition to teaching, is the administration of all the programs in the department. This is accomplished through continuous evaluation and revision of course objectives, course outlines, course competencies, course descriptions, teaching strategies, in the specific curriculum to ascertain that they are appropriate and relevant as well as the management of personnel and resources. The Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) Program Director serves to develop and direct all aspects of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography. The Program Director promotes the success of Diagnostic Medical Sonography programs among college administrators, faculty/staff, students, the health care community and the local community.
