Bystander Intervention Training

This hour-long interactive session focuses on how to step in and help in emergency and non-emergency situations. Sooner or later we all need help, and this will teach you the tools to be effective in these situations.

Open to students, faculty, and staff. Space is limited. To reserve a spot or schedule a training, contact our office at 207.581.1423.

Hazing Prevention

Hazing is defined as any activity without reasonable or legitimate education value expected of someone joining or maintaining status in a group that humiliates, degrades, or risks emotional, psychological, or physical harm, regardless of a person’s willingness to participate.

All forms of hazing are prohibited by Umaine both on and off campus. This policy is applicable to students, faculty, staff, and anyone involved with a Umaine club, athletic team, organization, association, program, or activity under the auspices of Umaine regardless of their student status.

Groups and organizations are an important part of the student experience at the University of Maine, providing a unique enrichment opportunity. Hazing undermines that experience.

Wellness Wednesdays
