The Anna Maria College community subscribes to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III philosophy and places the highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience on the successful completion of all students’ academic programs and on maintaining balance with their overall athletic experience. Anna Maria views athletics as a core institutional program linked to the College’s mission to educate for personal, professional and global responsibility. Anna Maria seeks to provide its student-athletes with the opportunity, consistent with NCAA Division III values, to grow through academic achievement, to learn through athletic competition and to develop a strong character both on and off the field.
At Anna Maria College, coaches and staff work with student-athletes to help them become successful in academics, responsible campus citizens and athletes who strive to excel at the highest level of Division III athletic competition. To help its student-athletes meet these expectations, the College accepts its responsibility to provide them with high quality athletic administration, coaching, facilities, and academic and student life support. All of this is done within the spirit of the College’s mission and in keeping with the traditions of the Sisters of Saint Anne to provide access to higher education for students of diverse backgrounds and economic means. Anna Maria sponsors 13 varsity sports and two club sports along with additional recreational activities. Anna Maria is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) and the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECFC).

Title: Assistant to Campus Ministry and Coordinator of Community Outreach
Campus Ministry focuses on the care of the whole person: spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically as he or she relates to his or her own life and relationship with God. Our goal is to offer opportunities for faith development for all religions through encouraging a personal relationship with God and building a faith community on campus.
Responding to ethical issues and participating in projects that highlight peace and justice in our world are priorities. Campus Ministry programs offer a forum to engage in discussions with faculty, staff, administrators, and students on topics that are relevant to culture and society.
Commuters are an important part of Anna Maria and we hope that they will find community here while taking classes. There are many resources available for commuters to be successful while on campus. A Commuter Lounge with comfortable seating, a refrigerator and microwave, and TV is available for commuters to enjoy in-between classes and in the evening. Free lockers are available for year-long reservations which are located next to the Commuter Lounge. Commuter Assistants, who are student employees, are experienced commuter students who are available to provide resources and support for the commuter population. These student employees will also run daytime programming for commuter students to enjoy while on campus.
The Counseling Center offers free and confidential mental health services for AMC students. We can address a range of issues, including but not limited to: academic stress, adjustment issues, relationship and/or roommate conflicts. Our clinicians also offer skilled support for anxiety, depression, and other mental health diagnoses. Services are available 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday, either in person or via Zoom. We also partner with BetterMynd, a free and confidential tele-therapy platform additionally available to all AMC students. The Counseling Center partners closely with area community services to meet student needs outside the centers scope or require more specialized care. We also regularly collaborate with Residential Life, Student Affairs, Academics, and Athletics to provide psycho-educational programming and events aimed at empowering students to improve their mental health care.
