Cornel Plebani — Eastern Maine Community College

"MindTap has allowed me to completely reorganize the landscape of the in-class experience in favor of practical application of concepts and experiential learning."

Cornel Plebani is the current department chair for the Criminal Justice program at Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor, ME. Before teaching, he worked for more than a decade in the field of mental health in both clinical and administrative positions in the service of children, adolescents and adults with psychiatric issues. Throughout his professional career, he has worked in settings as diverse as psychiatric hospitals, community-based treatment facilities and the Adolescent Reception Detention Center at Riker's Island Correctional Facility.

Cornel holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Drew University and a graduate degree in Forensic Psychology from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. He teaches a range of courses at EMCC, including Introduction to Public Safety, Criminology, and Ethics for the Criminal Justice Practitioner. His particular academic and research interests include violence and aggression, psychopathy, and serial predators. Cornel has used MindTap very successfully in many of his courses to expand teaching time for experiential and hands-on learning in and outside of the classroom.
