To align with University directives and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all in person activities, events and programs involving children should be conducted virtually and in alternative formats until further notice. These changes will remain in effect until otherwise directed by University of Michigan leadership and public health officials. Please check here periodically for resources and updates to support virtual experiences that align with the Children on Campus policy.

Establishing Boundaries

Progress: 0%
  • Do not engage in any sexual activity, make sexual comments, tell sexual jokes, or share sexually explicit material with minors or assist in any way to provide access to such material to minors
  • Do not engage in or allow minors to engage you in romantic or sexual conversations or related matters, unless required to do so in the role of resident advisor, counselor, or healthcare provider
  • Do not touch minors in a manner that a reasonable person could interpret as inappropriate
    • Touching should generally only be in the open and in response to the child’s needs, for a purpose that is consistent with program mission and culture, or for a clear educational, developmental, or health-related purpose (e.g., treatment of an injury). Any resistance from the minor should be respected.
  • Do not invite individual minors to your home or to other private locations
    • Any exceptions require authorization by the program administrator and written authorization by a parent/guardian
  • Do not provide gifts to minors or their families independent of items provided by
    the program.
