Owl Stand By You

Owl Stand By You

At the University of Maine at Presque Isle, we believe in the importance of standing together. Civil discourse, greater understanding of other cultures, safe spaces, and ensuring all voices are heard–these are all important to our campus.

In Fall 2016, UMPI leadership established an Inclusion and Civility Task Force. Its purpose? To foster inclusion and civility at UMPI in ways that embrace diversity, create solidarity, encourage civil discourse and respect for others, and increase a general feeling of safety on campus. 

The group is kicking off its efforts with Stand Together Week on Tuesday, March 21 through Thursday, March 23, 2017. A Pledge has been created that reflects our campus values and all are invited to sign a six-foot-high version of it to show their commitment to inclusion, civility, and their fellow Owls. For times and locations, please view the poster.
