Important Updates

To align with university directives and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all in-person activities, events and programs must be in compliance with University COVID safety protocols. Refer to the Campus Maize & Blueprint for the most up-to-date guidance.

Effective September 14, 2021 the Children on Campus policy has been expanded to include all study team members who interact with children as research participants.

Background Checks

To ensure that children and teens are supported by qualified adults in a safe and secure environment, all adult program or event faculty, staff, students, and volunteers are required to complete a background check before they begin working with children.

Background checks for faculty, staff students and volunteers for U-M programs must be repeated every two years. If a criminal record history is revealed, the application will be referred to Risk Management Services for evaluation consistent with SPG 201.95: Background Screening Policy.

Background checks are provided by the university at no cost to university-sponsored programs. Download the Background Screening Decision Matrix.

Program administrators of non-university-Sponsored Programs are required to certify that they have conducted criminal background checks and determined the fitness of all volunteers and program or event staff before being allowed to use or lease university facilities.
