All advertisements for open positions at the University of Maine must clearly state that the University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. This statement must be conspicuously placed in the announcement, which means that it is usually placed at the end of the announcement, set apart from the other text, and in another font—usually bold.
The statement must read as follows:
The University of Maine is an EEO/AA employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
If you have any questions about the Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer statement, please call Karen Kemble or Bonita Grindle at the Office of Equal Opportunity, 581.1226.
