Minors on Campus Policy

The Health Sciences Center is committed to a safe and healthy environment for all including students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors, especially those who are minors. We welcome children and teenagers on our campuses for a variety of programs and activities planned by the University or by outside organizations. In all circumstances, adults are expected to be positive role models for minors, acting in a respectful and professional manner consistent with the mission, vision and values of the University. To promote this vision, the University publishes and enforces policies, procedures, and guidelines that have the goal of promoting health, safety, and security for minors on our campuses.

All programs involving minors on the campus must adhere to UAP 2205 (“Minors on Campus”). The policy also includes a mandatory Minors on Campus checklist, a Minor Participant Waiver Form and Notice of Risk Form signed by each minor’s parent; and a Minor Emergency Contact and Medical Release Forms signed by each minor’s parent.
