Our Vision

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive in an environment that is free from abuse and maltreatment.

Our Effort

Youth Safety & Compliance (YSC) offers resources and programming to promote safety and protect the well-being of minors, for whom most colleges and universities were not designed.


Oregon State University is committed to offering a physically, psychologically and emotionally safe environment for all youth.


To fulfill this mission, YSC oversees policies and activity guidelines, including relevant training and reporting requirements for employees and volunteers who engage directly with minors.

A central Youth Program Registry is used to track youth programming and youth-facing adults across OSU's network.
