Meet Our Staff

Jim Whitten

Dean, Midcoast Campus and Satellite Centers

“The SMCC Midcoast Campus is a special place. We are a small and intimate community where students benefit from a supportive and knowledgeable staff and faculty. As the campus dean, I am very proud of the community our students, faculty and staff create every semester. I am consistently amazed by students as they learn and grow, and organically establish campus clubs and activities that make the campus come alive. I’ve had the incredible honor of establishing, nurturing and championing the Midcoast Campus since 2011. As we continue to grow and expand our course offerings, initiate workforce training programs and continue to provide excellent educational opportunities, our students will continue to benefit from our special place.”

Vicki-Rose Porter

Midcoast Campus Coordinator

“The Midcoast Campus is a special part of SMCC. We are a small campus that offers a lot of opportunities to the Midcoast region. The growing number of classes and programs offered here in Brunswick give many affordable and accessible opportunities to students. I love working with students starting with the application process, continuing with their New Student Orientation, and every other step along their SMCC journey right up until their preparation for graduation. I provide one-on-one support service to all Midcoast students, assisting with the registration process, financial aid, billing and academic support services. Students receive all of the services they would find at a larger campus but with a small campus feel.”

Nancy Collins

Student Coordinator

“I love the size of the Midcoast Campus. We are small enough to have a friendly community feel, but large enough to offer a variety of courses and majors. This campus is the perfect place for students who are undecided, new to college, returning to school after many years, or know exactly what they want and how to get there. No matter what their educational background, all students are welcome here.”

Rachel Smith

Student Success Specialist

“I am excited to be a part of SMCC’s Midcoast Campus. The small size of the campus allows us to get to know our students, and there are many opportunities for students on campus, at Brunswick Landing and throughout the Midcoast region. I am here to help students from the beginning of the admissions process to the end of their journeys at SMCC. I look forward to welcoming and supporting students as they pursue their educational, personal and professional goals.”

Tori Penney

Residence Director/Activities Coordinator
“There are a lot of benefits to living at the Midcoast Campus. It is a tight-knit community with many opportunities to get involved. There are a variety of clubs and organizations on campus, and you can always start a new one. We also have many events throughout the year so that our residents can relax, have fun and get to know each other.

“Orion Hall offers a very different living-learning experience from the housing provided on the South Portland Campus. Each unit is apartment-style with a kitchenette, full bath and a living area. We also have a student lounge, a recreation lounge, a quiet-study lounge and a fitness center in the building. If you are looking for a more independent living arrangement while still having opportunities to get involved, the Midcoast Campus could be a good fit for you.”

A Vibrant College Town & Community

SMCC’s Midcoast Campus is located in Brunswick, a vibrant college town with charm and bustle, and a wide assortment of restaurants, shops, pubs, museums, theaters and other attractions. Our campus is housed at Brunswick Landing, an innovative and growing business/educational campus on the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. Brunswick Landing has a high-speed fiber optic network, its own golf course, bike paths and an all-green power system.
