Working with Minors

Effective July 1, 2009, University Policy and Procedure 4-26 was established to provide a safe environment to those under the age of 18 years old participating in programs and activities at Marquette University. Unless an exception applies, programs that involve adults working with minors in university-sponsored programs and other programs held on campus must register with the Department of Risk Management. In addition, adults, before directly participating with minors in such programs and activities, must complete a criminal history background check; observe specific behavioral requirements; report all allegations of inappropriate conduct; and participate in mandatory training on protecting minors and on the behavioral and reporting requirements of the policy. The Department of Risk Management's website provides additional information on this topic and all required forms needed for this policy.
