The University considers the safety and well-being of these non-student minors while on campus immensely important. Accordingly, this Programs Serving Non-Student Minors Policy sets forth certain operational standards for the activities described herein, in compliance with the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia Policy 6.9 (“Programs Serving Minors”).
All Sponsored and Hosted Programs must register annually and complete annual calendar year training (offered in the Fall for the following calendar year) with the Office of Safety & Risk Management. Program Directors of Sponsored Programs must complete the Program Checklist and submit to the Director, Safety & Risk Management as verification of compliance. Should you have any questions with compliance requirements, please review the Minors on Campus Policy FAQs and contact the Director, Safety & Risk Management. It is the responsibility of Program Directors to ensure background checks are completed for all staff and volunteers working in the Program.
All incidents must be reported to the Director, Safety & Risk Management immediately. The Code of Conduct is to be reviewed and signed by each staff member and volunteer. Please see GSU Atrial Defibrillator Locations.
All Sponsored programs that have Minors In Lab will need to comply with the Minors In Lab Policy.
It is also required that employees all organizations serving non-student minors complete an online “Recognizing and Reporting Suspected Child Abuse” training module.
