Maine’s community colleges make Tech Promise: Students in need will get tech, support for online learning

August 20, 2020

AUGUSTA — In a pledge to incoming and returning students, Maine’s community colleges are announcing the “Tech Promise,” a commitment that students in need will have the technology and support they need for learning online.

“You bring the commitment to learn and we’ll make sure you have the tools you need,” said Maine Community College President David Daigler. “We have a lot of students who are interested in attending one of our seven colleges, but they’re hesitating because they just aren’t sure about the future. The Tech Promise erases at least one of those concerns.

“We are committed to the success of all our students, and the first step in this uncertain time is making sure they have the tools and support to be successful,” Daigler said. About 70 percent of classes are being delivered online this fall, with in-person instruction limited to critical hands-on instruction.  To read the full press release CLICK HERE.
