Protection of Children Policy

The University is committed to promoting the safety and wellbeing of children who are entrusted to the University’s care, who participate in University Programs, or who are present in University facilities. The purpose of the Protection of Children Policy is to describe the University’s expectations and set forth criteria for those associated with the University when sponsoring programs involving Children to ensure their safety while in the University’s care.

If you manage programming at the University that involves children or plan to develop such programming at any point in the future, remember that you are expected to follow the processes and criteria outlined in the University’s Protection of Children Policy.  The Policy is available at the Protection of Children website , which also includes additional information and resources to assist in the development of children’s programming in accordance with University Policy.
