Maine Public interviews Ferrini-Mundy about updated student conduct guidelines

Maine Public quoted UMaine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy following the announcement of new student conduct guidelines by the University of Maine System. The student code of conduct was updated to allow suspension or dismissal of students who host or attend gatherings that violate current state guidelines aimed at controlling the spread of COVID-19. “This is a different kind of start,” Ferrini-Mundy said. “And so when it might be traditional to have larger gatherings and get together and see friends, we really are asking our students to do this within all guidance and safely. The behavior of our community and our students, in particular, is vital to doing all that we’re able to do to prevent outbreaks.” WAGM in Presque Isle, News Center Maine (Channel 6 in Portland), WABI (Channel 5) and also reported on the updated guidelines.
