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.

Apply the Rule of “3s”

Progress: 0%
  • Children should not be in secluded areas with adults
  • If one-on-one interaction is required, meet in open, well-illuminated spaces with windows
  • Ensure a third party is included on all communications

    • Healthcare provider
    • Legally required exceptions
    • Expressly authorized by the program administrator

Children under the age of 14 who are entrusted to our care must be supervised until they are safely released to an authorized responsible adult

  • Programs should obtain clear instructions identifying who is authorized to pick up and drop off children
  • Establish drop-off and pick-up schedules and locations
  • Require proof of identity before releasing children
  • Do not release to anyone other than authorized person(s)

Wherever children are, their safety is a vital concern to everyone on campus. What could go wrong? Anything! Consider some possible situations:

  • Accidental injuries
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical problems
  • Child abuse
  • Lost children
  • Theft and violence

We want you to be aware and prepared – not scared! Fear and anxiety is best managed by education, communication, and preparation.

This training is intended to offer guidance on practical risk-reduction measures to
provide a physically and psychologically secure setting while managing balance and common sense.
