Each year, thousands of children and teens interact with the University of Michigan through a variety of programs, events and studies both on and off our campuses.
Creating a positive environment that promotes the health, wellness, safety, and security of children who are entrusted to the university’s care and custody and/or participate in programs/events/or when children are the subject of research is of utmost importance to the university, and we’ve established guidelines and expectations for program/event administrators, faculty, staff, students, visitors and all study team members who interact with children as research participants.
The U-M Standard Practice Guide: Children on Campus 601.34 requires registration of programs and events and provides guidance for all programs, events and studies serving children.
These guidelines are also expected to be followed for programs and events that are not sponsored by the university but take place on university campuses or in university facilities.
These guidelines apply to programs and activities under the direction and authority of the university on all campuses (Ann Arbor, Michigan Medicine, UM-Flint, UM-Dearborn, Athletics) or off-campus.
