Minors Program Registration Reminder
The University considers the safety and well-being of youth program participants to be important. As part of its commitment to provide an open and safe campus environment for all, including minors (those under the age of 18), the University needs to identify all programs, events and activities that serve, or otherwise engage, youth. This is a reminder to the community that virtual interactions with minors are included in this commitment.
Each University program sponsor must consider the impact of all activities conducted during the course of a camp or enrichment program, must appreciate the risks and legal responsibilities and take appropriate measures to manage the potential for exposure to program participants to reasonable foreseeable risks.
All virtual programs that involve at least one minor must be registered with Risk Management. We remind you to take the following precautions:
- Include at least three people in the interaction
- Utilize a University-approved platform, such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams
- Provide the link to another adult so as to keep the interaction interruptable and public
- Ensure staff is trained and background checked prior to the interaction taking place
