Protection of minors policy reminder
July 14, 2021 8:02 AM

Dear campus community member:

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is committed to creating a safe environment for everyone who participates in programs on our campus, including those who are under the age of 18. As many of you prepare to again begin hosting on-campus programs, camps and other activities, we would like to remind faculty and staff about the university policy on protection of minors and our procedures for implementing that policy. You can find more information on those items by following the below links.

Everyone involved in a university-sponsored program or activity and who is responsible for the supervision of minors or whose duties would require close contact with minors must undergo a criminal background check and sex offender registry check. Please review the implementation procedures for more information about this requirement.

These requirements apply to all university personnel, volunteers and contractors associated with events and activities where minors will be involved. Units with programs or activities designed to include minors who are not enrolled at the university are required report those activities to the University of Illinois Police Department at External entities or Registered Student Organizations may report activities using a shortened version of this form which can be found at

Virtual or online events involving minors are subject to many of the same requirements as in-person events, and organizers must complete the protection of minors form for those activities as well.

You can visit the University Police website at for more information, including a five-minute video from the University of Illinois Ethics and Compliance Office explaining everything you need to know. We encourage you to use this video as a training tool in your unit.

Anyone with questions may contact Protection of Minors Compliance Specialist Stephanie Vogelsang at 217-300-1533 or


Alice Cary

Executive Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police
