IV. POLICY

  1. Scope

    This Policy provides guidelines that apply broadly to interactions between Minors and University students, faculty, staff, and Volunteers in University-sponsored or co-sponsored Programs or activities. This Policy also establishes requirements for non-University organizations and guests that operate Programs or activities involving Minors on campus and at University Facilities. University agreements with such organizations and entities are intended to reflect those requirements and the requirements are incorporated into those agreements by reference. All parties participating in Programs involving Minors are responsible to understand and comply with this Policy.

    Forms and additional information related to this Policy contain requirements and procedures that may be updated from time to time by University administration. These documents and additional information about the implementation of this Policy may be obtained from SUU Risk Management.
  2. Policy Statements
    1. SUU complies with all applicable federal, state, and local laws concerning the protection of Minors in university-sponsored and co-sponsored Programs. In addition to this Policy, some of these Programs (such as daycare) may be subject to stricter state and federal laws and regulations. In these instances, those stricter laws prevail.
    2. This Policy applies to all members of the university community, including all University employees, interns, and students, and also to all Volunteers, contractors, vendors, Authorized Adults, Minors, and other individuals who use University Facilities. The University requires all such persons to adhere to and act in accordance with this Policy.
    3. Failure to comply with the requirements set forth in this Policy may lead to disciplinary action and/or revocation of permission to use University premises. University employees who fail to comply with this Policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination of employment. Non-Minor students who fail to comply with this Policy will be subject to University sanction, up to and including suspension and expulsion. Minors who violate this Policy will be subject to sanction, up to and including removal from a Program or the University. Programs that fail to comply with this Policy will be subject to sanction, up to and including suspension of the Program.
    4. In keeping with the University’s commitment to the protection of Minors, and in compliance with applicable laws, any employee, student, or Volunteer of the University who witnesses or has reasonable cause to suspect any abuse of a Minor occurring on a University campus, at University Facilities, or during university-sponsored Programs/activities is required to report such conduct to SUU Police immediately or other law enforcement agencies as applicable.

    6. The University requires that all Program directors and other leaders of any university-sponsored or co-sponsored Program who brings Non-Enrolled Minors onto a University campus or to University Facilities:

      2. Have an adequate number of Authorized Adults supervising Non-Enrolled Minor Program participants for the type of activity sponsored. Some of the factors to consider in determining “adequate number” are the number and age of participants, the activity(ies) involved, the type of housing if applicable, and the age and experience of the Authorized Adults.
    7. University faculty, staff, students, or Volunteers serving as Authorized Adults shall complete mandatory training at least every two (2) years on the conduct requirements of this policy, including as set forth in Sections IV.C.2. and IV.C.3.

      1. This section describes the obligations of faculty, staff, and others in working with Enrolled Minors to provide for the Enrolled Minors’ protection, to fulfill the University’s obligations as mandated by law, and to provide the best possible educational experience for all Enrolled Minors.
      2. To provide a safe and secure environment for Enrolled Minors, the following student information may be provided to faculty and staff who have a legitimate need-to-know:
