Auburn University’s Youth Protection Policy is effective as of March 1, 2021. This policy helps strengthen Auburn’s commitment to protect minors, fulfill obligations mandated by law, and provide the best possible experience for any minor visiting campus or participating in University-related programs.
The full policy can be viewed here: https://sites.auburn.edu/admin/universitypolicies/Policies/YouthProtectionPolicy.pdf
The policy has positive far-reaching effects and applies to University employees, students, contractors, and volunteers working with Youth Programs, including online Youth Programs. This policy updates and strengthens the previous Minors on Campus Policy. This policy also helps reinforce Auburn University’s Youth Protection Program as a whole.
In anticipation and in aid of the policy’s implementation, Risk Management and Safety has launched a new Youth Protection Program resource page located at https://cws.auburn.edu/rms/pm/youth.
This page will include Frequently Asked Questions, a Planning Checklist, Forms and Resources, and more. Program Directors will also be able to get information on how to register a Youth Program.
For questions about the Youth Protection Policy or the Youth Protection Program, please contact Kim White, Youth Protection Program Manager at 334-750-6679 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
