Human Dignity Statement
We recognize, understand and encourage celebration of the human differences that surround us. We ask you to participate in fostering this spirit.  Any expression of bigotry, hatred, prejudice or disrespect is inconsistent with the ideals of preserving human dignity and contradicts the values of healthful living and fair play promoted by the University of Maine and our staff.

Diversity – We believe in achieving excellence through cultural diversity.  We support this endeavor by creating a welcoming environment in our facilities, and offering a variety of programs and services to appeal to all members of our community.

Personal Development – We consider ourselves educators and provide opportunities for our participants to learn, grow and develop new skills through participation.  We commit to the development of our staff by offering challenging employment, meaningful leadership experiences and purposeful on-going training.

Sustainability – We are excellent stewards of our resources.  We work hard to responsibly manage our environmental, human and fiscal resources to support continuous, high level programming.

Wellness – We are committed to helping people make positive, lasting changes in their lives.  We provide excellent programs, services and facilities that support the health and well being of our campus and community.

Customer Service – We care about our participants and work hard to offer world class, welcoming service. We strive to be the place people think about when they think of excellent customer service at the University of Maine.
