Woodson University Buys a New Campus

Woodson University, the newly established educational institution in Concord, North Carolina, which is named for the esteemed black historian, Carter G. Woodson, has been awarded the right to purchase the 10.5-acre property that housed the Old Bethel School campus in Midland, North Carolina. The Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners chose the Woodson University offer through a sealed bid process.

The property includes five buildings and three athletic fields. A.L. Fleming, president of Woodson University, told JBHE that the buildings will need renovation. He estimates that students, faculty, and administrators will be able to do business on the campus within two years after the sale of the property is finalized.
