ETSU Non-Student Minors in University-Sponsored Programs Policy Description The proposed Non-Student Minors in University-Sponsored Programs Policy was drafted by a diverse on-campus working group comprised of key program, unit, and faculty/staff stakeholders. The review included benchmarking from peer institutions and selected best practice institutions. The policy addresses the participation of non-student minors in university programs and activities; including but not limited to athletic camps, academic camps and enrichment experiences, and summer camps and conferences. The policy is not intended to replace current policies or guidelines in university child-care facilities, university health or mental health clinics, but the provisions in this policy may add responsibilities to those units. The policy addresses a program registration requirement for university-sponsored programs that involve non-student minors. The policy also addresses a background check requirement for staff who work in university-sponsored programs that involve non-student minors, as well as expected training and notification requirements. The policy includes a check-list and guidelines that may be helpful to any university personnel who participate in activities involving non-student minors.
