130.030 – CODE OF CONDUCT

Date Revised: May 2020

POLICY

It is expected that all members of Maine Media’s community including board, faculty, staff, and students participate in the community with a level of ethical behavior that supports the mission of the school, these core values, and the well being of each individual in the community.

In addition to the policies and procedures published in the employee, student, and faculty handbooks, all community members must be responsible for their actions and not engage in behavior that is threatening, dangerous or harmful to self or others, that causes disruption to the campus and learning environment, or that damages physical property.

Policies and procedures for students and faculty, including procedures for filing and resolving grievances, are published in the Employee, Student, and Faculty handbooks.

We consider the virtual classroom an extension of our community with all members adhering to the Code of Conduct. Due to the open nature of the discussion forums, students are expected to post only professional, relevant responses suitable to the academic environment. Students are requested to be mindful and respectful toward the person receiving communication and comments. Faculty will delete any comments deemed to be disruptive or inappropriate to the learning environment.
