Employees and volunteers with direct access to minors in a university youth program are required to participate in a Criminal Records Check and Sex Offender Registry Check process, which is coordinated by University Human Resources.

Vendors, contractors, or non‐university operators offering youth programs on university property are responsible for implementing a background check protocol that aligns with University Policy 07-040 Protection of Minors and University Policy 05‐010 Comprehensive Background Checks.
