Child and Youth Abuse
The university takes seriously its responsibility to ensure that youth participating in our programs or visiting our campus enter a safe, healthy and positive environment. Adults interacting with young people will act with integrity and respect to the child. It is the adult’s responsibility to set and respect boundaries.
Inappropriate behavior towards children and youth includes but is not limited to, any type of sexual contact, kissing, dating, providing mood altering substances such as illegal drugs, prescription drugs (not prescribed to the child) or alcohol, giving extravagant gifts including money, providing children and/or youth with personal phone numbers and contacting the child or youth unnecessarily or for social reasons, taking pictures or videotaping outside of the scope of the program and without the parents’/guardians’ permission.
