“I chose EMCC for affordability. I saved between $40-50k by starting my education here. I was debt-free six months after graduation. My classes were also full of non-traditional students, which gave me a perspective and value that I may have missed out on elsewhere.”
CARE Team Referral
No matter what your role is within the campus community, Eastern Maine Community College wants to hear your concerns about issues that impact the safety and well-being of our students. Your communication with us is vital to our ability to protect and provide assistance to students. Situations to report might range from noticing that a friend is struggling with mental health issues to disruptive behaviors in the classroom to hearing about a student threatening another party. If you witness or learn of something that is out of the ordinary or leaves you alarmed, please complete a referral.
All of your referrals will be initially viewed by the Co-Chairs of the CARE Team, the Dean of Students and the campus counselor. After the initial review, it will be decided which member of the CARE Team (Vice President of Academic Affairs, Director of Safety & Security, Student Navigator, Director of Residence Life, and the previously mentioned Co-Chairs) will discreetly gather further information and follow-up if indicated. All CARE Team members are mindful of students’ privacy and take confidentiality very seriously. Action taken by CARE Team members as a result of this referral is protected by Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and therefore becomes confidential information unless otherwise specified by the named student(s).
*Please note that Emergency Services should be contacted when there is an immediate threat to health or safety. Call 911 first.
