Below are the Maine Media’s policies that apply to all members of our campus community. For program-specific policies, please refer to the handbooks listed on the College – Forms, Academic Calendar, Policies & Handbooks and the Notices, Policies & Forms pages.  If you have any questions about your employment or these policies, please contact Jane Richardson at [email protected].

Academic Policies are defined as those policies which impact academic programs and services to students and facilitate the academic and professional life of the faculty.

The anti-discrimination and harassment policy protects everyone in Maine Media’s community from discrimination based on certain personal characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, sex, age, sexual orientation and gender identity, among others. It also protects the community from bullying & harassment, including sexual harassment.

Campus Policies apply broadly across Maine Media, governing the community of students, faculty, staff, and guests.

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, the core values, and the well being of each individual in the community.

This guide is meant to give information about the process by which Maine Media will address any complaint or concern about conduct that has been brought forward.

A process exists for Maine Media’s community to address grievances of a general nature. Each grievance (complaint) will be considered carefully and individually, and every effort will be made to resolve issues to the mutual satisfaction of all parties.

A grievance differs from an appeal of an academic decision, as it deals with service issues and not the actual outcomes of course work. See Student Handbooks for academic appeals.

The Mission & Purposes is a declaration that Maine Media uses to describe our purpose and commitments.

The non-disclosure policies protects the privacy of student education records and the responsibility of the community to keep Maine Media informed of any changes to the way Maine Media communicates information to the community, including address, email, phone number, etc.

Maine Media encourages its community members to be fully aware of the safety issues on the campus and to take action to prevent and to report illegal and/or inappropriate activities. Personal awareness and applying personal safety practices are the foundation of a safe community. Maine Media is committed to providing a safe and secure environment to everyone.

Maine Media is committed to providing individuals with disabilities equal access to the academic courses, programs and activities. In accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Maine Media strives in its policies and practices to assure not only nondiscrimination but to provide for the full participation of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of Maine Media life.

Maine Media recognizes the vital role information technology plays in the mission and related administrative activities as well as the importance in an academic environment of protecting information in all forms. As more information is used and shared in a digital format by students, faculty and staff, both within and outside the community, an increased effort must be made to protect the information and the technology resources that support it. Increased protection of our information and Information Technology Resources to assure the usability and availability of those Resources is the primary purpose of these policies. The policies also addresses privacy and usage of those who access Maine Media Information Technology Resources.
