University of Utah Safety of Minors Participating in University Programs or Programs held on University Premises
Effective July 1, 2016 youth programs are required to adhere to University Policy 1-015 Safety of Minors.
The Safety of Minors policy was created to provide for the safety and protection of Minors who are participating in University sponsored or co-sponsored programs, or programs operated by non-University entities on University Premises. This policy applies to all members of the University community, including all employees, interns, and students, and also to all volunteers, contractors, vendors, Authorized, and other individuals who use University Premises.
For questions regarding the Safety of Minors Policy, you may contact Youth Protection and Program Support (YPPS). YPPS serves the wider campus to help programs understand the Safety of Minors Policy and provide guidance to bring them into compliance. By providing resources and training, YPPS and the University of Utah are committed to creating a safe, educational environment to the 50,000+ minors participating in university sponsored programs.
