Campus Safety Project
Sarah Holmes, Deputy Title IX Coordinator, (207) 780-5767

The USM Campus Safety Project is university-wide effort to promote healthy relationships at USM by providing prevention education and response training on sexual harassment, assault, stalking, and relationship abuse for students, faculty, and staff and coordinating campus and community-based programs and services.

Funded through a three-year grant from the Department of Justice via the Violence Against Women Act, the project incorporates both direct service and programming with a broader focus on university-wide policies and procedures.

From the Intercultural Student Engagement website:

We serve as a resource for every student to engage in the rich education and growth found through active exchange across cultures and identities.  We facilitate the exploration of critical issues around ability, class, ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and the intersectionality of these and other identities. We are committed to building a campus community where all students can fully participate and feel valued, in an educational environment that is inclusive and safe.


Interculturally-focused Student Organizations include:

  • Black Organization for Student Success, a.k.a. B.O.S.S. 
  • Global Citizens Club
  • Huskies for Reproductive Health
  • Latinx Student Alliance
  • Model United Nations Organization
  • Native American Student Alliance
  • Queer Straight Alliance
  • USM Students Without Borders Association

Not all of these groups may be currently active, but please reach out to the ISE to learn more and get involved.
