We're your local partner
Maine's community colleges are designed to be an integral part of their local communities and to serve as true partners in efforts to improve the quality of life across the state. To that end, Maine's seven community colleges have forged effective, ongoing partnerships to support economic and workforce development efforts, to expand access to higher education, and to bring lifelong learning opportunities to area residents.
Our partners include business and industry, local schools, and other institutions of higher education. And our shared efforts include:
Articulation agreements with other universities and colleges;
Educational Opportunities through New Brunswick Community College Network
Scholarships from industry associations and businesses;
Customized training; and
Curriculum development and program advising.
We're your education partner, and we’re proud of all that we have to offer.
