We want to thank you for your dedication to our mission during times that require us to adapt quickly to still-changing guidance and best practices related to the COVID-19 spread. The Cabinet and emergency management personnel meet regularly to assess the potential impact to the College and determine the best course of action. ECC will provide updates periodically through email, the employee newsletter (Spartan Review), and on this page. If you have a new mobile phone number or email address and have not provided it to the College, read the instructions to update your record.
