Programs Serving Minors

Board of Regents Policy 12.9: Programs Serving Minors. University System of Georgia (USG) institutions periodically conduct, sponsor or host programs designed to serve minors who are not enrolled as students, including but not limited to camps, clinics, after school programs, and activities. Employees and volunteers associated with these programs who are reasonably anticipated to have direct contact or interaction with minor program participants must be appropriately pre-screened and trained. Institution presidents are responsible for establishing institution-level procedures to implement these requirements consistent with this policy and with any implementing procedures established by the Chancellor or the Chancellor’s designee. Institution presidents shall submit a copy of their institutional procedures as directed by January 1, 2017. This policy will become effective for programs starting on or after May 1, 2017.
