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.

Mandated Reporters

Progress: 0%

Michigan’s Child Protection Law, MCL § 722.621, et seq., designates individuals in certain occupations and professions as mandated reporters. Mandated reporters include anyone in the following occupations.  A more complete listing is available at

Physician Physician Assistant Dental Hygienist
Medical Examiner Nurse EMT

Counselor Social Worker Social Services Worker
Friend of the Court School Administrator Teacher
Law Enforcement Clergy Child Care Provider

University faculty, staff, or students who are working with minors in their professional or official capacity and who have questions about whether they may be considered mandated reporters under
Michigan law should contact their supervisor, dean, or vice president, or the program administrator. The Office of  the Vice President and General Counsel is also available to provide advice.

Mandated reporters must immediately report known or suspected mental or physical abuse or neglect of a child made known to them in their professional or official capacity directly to the State of Michigan Department of Human Services
