Training

Members of the Boston University community who participate in programs or activities that include Minors are expected to receive training in the following areas:

  • University Recommended Guidelines for Interacting with Minors
  • Warning signs for child abuse or neglect
  • A review of the process for reporting potential harm to Minors, including obligations of mandated reporters

All University students, faculty, staff, and volunteers in University Activities, including services, programs, and activities occurring on and off Campus, and owners, operators, employees, agents, and volunteers of Third Party Programs should receive such training prior to being permitted to participate in programs that include Minors.

Two levels of training are available: (1) online and (2) policy/document review. The appropriate level of training will vary depending on the type of program, and the level of interaction with the Minor(s). Minors Program Coordinators should work with Program Operators to determine which type of training to provide, and to ensure the appropriate training is delivered.

See the BU Policies webpage for more details about the training requirements.
