“I need to work to afford college, and I don’t want to leave Dover-Foxcroft to attend college away. The Penquis Higher Education Center in Dover-Foxcroft is the reason I am able to attend college. By staying here I am able to work with young children at a local child card facility — work directly related to my career goals — while going to school. The Penquis College Center has made it easy for me to pursue my goal of becoming an Infant/Toddler Teacher.”
Center for Business and Industry
Eastern Maine Community College’s Center for Business and Industry serves as an innovative economic resource for the community, supporting business and entrepreneurial activities and improving their success rate. We work with businesses to address workforce growth, training needs, professional development, and education.
