REQUIRED CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING
The University of Chicago has adopted The Policy on the Safety of Children in University Programs. The requirements of this policy apply to faculty, academic appointees, postdoctoral researchers, staff, student employees, volunteers, and others who work with University programs that serve children. The purpose of the policy is to promote the protection of children, to fulfill our obligations as mandated by law, and to provide the best possible experience for any child visiting our campuses or involved in University-related programs.
This policy requires faculty, academic appointees, postdoctoral researchers, staff, student employees, and volunteers who supervise a covered program and/or have direct contact with minors in covered programs to do three things:
1. participate in training on mandated reporting status, the policy, and conduct requirements for working with youth (e.g., how to maintain appropriate boundaries);
2. satisfactorily complete a criminal background and registered sex offender check;
3. comply with standards regarding their conduct while working with youth in covered programs.
Please click on the link below to complete the child protection training. After completion of the training you will be asked to acknowledge that you read the Policy, agree to the background screening, and agree to abide by the conduct requirements.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO KEEP CHILDREN SAFE.
