N.C. Wesleyan College is moving to a new Durham location by early summer in hopes of expanding its reach to working adults living in Durham and Orange counties.

Wesleyan, a private institution affiliated with the United Methodist Church and based in Rocky Mount, will move from Perimeter Park in Raleigh-Durham, where it’s been based for almost a decade, to a one-story, 18,658-square-foot office in Miami North, 4426 South Miami Blvd.
Evan Duff, vice president of adult and professional studies at Wesleyan, said the Perimeter Park location was hard to find.
“We want to take the education to the students instead of forcing the students to come to us,” Duff said. “This is a perfect building that gave us roadside signage and access to students.”
He said Wesleyan plans to move into Miami North around June 1 and make that office a flagship location for Durham and Orange counties.
Down the road, he added, the college is looking at setting up another space in west Raleigh or Cary.
Wesleyan offers bachelor’s degree programs in areas such as business administration, psychology, criminal justice, accounting, marking and special education. Its accelerated classes and online courses are aimed at adults looking for flexibility when continuing their education, Duff said.
About 270 students are enrolled through Wesleyan’s Raleigh-Durham location and are at various stages of attaining their degrees.
