- In 1963, the General Assembly of North Carolina established a system of community colleges and technical institutes which was to be governed by the State Board of Education and a local board of trustees for each institution. In April 1964, the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges, upon recommendation of the Commission of Public Education beyond the High School Level, established Richmond Technical Institute. Seven months later, the voters of Richmond County authorized a bond issue and a tax levy for construction and support of Richmond Technical Institute. In October 1980, the name was changed to Richmond Technical College. In July 1987, the name was again changed to Richmond Community College when the North Carolina General Assembly approved Richmond Community College's application for community college status.
