The University of Maine at Machias is committed to maintaining a respectful, fair campus environment, free from discrimination, including discriminatory harassment. The goal of the university is to prevent discrimination from occurring and to provide an effective means of raising and promptly resolving complaints.
The university offers internal complaint procedures to resolve concerns of discrimination or harassment on account of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, including transgender status or gender expression, national origin or citizenship status, age, disability, genetic information, or veteran status. These issues may be raised by faculty, staff, students, or members of the community.
Retaliation for bringing a complaint of discrimination or participating in an investigation into such concerns is prohibited.
Faculty, Staff and Students
Complaints against faculty or staff or challenges to a university practice
If a faculty, staff, or student believes that they are being discriminated against and the concern involves actions by a faculty, staff member, or the issue relates to a university practice, the complaint may be resolved using the University of Maine System Equal Opportunity Complaint Procedure. This procedure provides for both informal and formal complaint resolution mechanisms.
Complaints against students
If a faculty, staff, or student believes that they are being discriminated against and the concern involves actions by a student, the University of Maine System Equal Opportunity Complaint Procedure provides that formal complaints are resolved through the University of Maine’s Student Conduct Code process. Such conduct may be reported to the University of Maine at Machias’s Title IX Coordinator.
Members of the Public
The University of Maine System provides a mechanism for individuals who are neither employees nor students of the University but who believe that they have been discriminated against to raise these concerns through the University of Maine System Equal Opportunity Complaint Procedure.
