Non-Discrimination and Equal Opportunity

GOVERNANCE AND ORGANIZATION

欧宝体育官网 201

1. Statement of Intent

The Maine Community College System recognizes that unlawful discrimination in educational programs and employment, based upon race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, including gender identity or expression, national origin, disability, age, genetic information or status as a Vietnam-era veteran can foreclose economic opportunity to a significant number of persons. In order to avoid this inequity, and to afford all persons the opportunity to achieve their rightful place in society, the Maine Community College System pledges to eliminate unlawful discrimination upon any group protected by state or federal laws and, employ and educate qualified members of under-represented groups.

2. Policy Statement

The Maine Community College System provides equal opportunity regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, including gender identity or expression, age, genetic information or Vietnam era veteran status pursuant to Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972; Executive Order 11246 as amended by Executive Order 11375; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1975; the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986; the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008; and the Maine Human Rights Act (5 M.R.S.A., §4551, et. seq.).

In addition, pursuant to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Maine Human Rights Act, the Maine Community College System does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs and activities. This policy affects employment policies and actions, as well as the delivery of educational services, at all levels and facilities of the Maine Community College System.

RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION OF EMPLOYEES

Goal

It is the goal of the College to seek and retain the best-qualified persons available for its employees.

It is the goal of the College to establish fair and meaningful criteria to be used for the selection of all job applicants. Any standards or criteria which may have discriminated or excluded any individual or groups shall be eliminated unless the College can demonstrate that such standards or criteria are conditions of successful performance in the particular position involved.

Objectives

In filling openings, the College will recruit in such a way that all qualified individuals receive notice of, and an opportunity to be considered for, employment.

All questions asked of candidates will remain as consistent and job-related as practicable throughout the selection process.

Activities

To recruit internal candidates, announcements of the job vacancies and the College’s Non-Discrimination Policy Statement will be shared with all community colleges through the direction of Maine’s Community Colleges’ Human Resource Offices according to the guidelines established in negotiated contracts.

External candidates are recruited through a variety of means, including but not limited to: advertisements in the Bangor Daily News, Portland Press Herald, Lewiston Sun Journal, Kennebec Journal, Waterville Sentinel, Maine Sunday Telegram, the Boston Globe, and Maine Job Service; online recruiting sites such as Indeed, Higher Ed Jobs, Maine Job Link, and Jobs in Maine.

Members of employment search committees will have diversity/non-discrimination training.  Prior to each interview process, a list of questions to be asked consistently of each interviewee will be developed by the search committee.   

Applicant flow data will be maintained by the College Human Resources Office and will be available for review.  This data will include the date of application, gender, and ethnicity information if known, and the action taken.
