Dear Members of the University Community:

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign reaffirms our commitment to providing a safe environment for minors who participate in University programs. As summer activities begin, please be aware of the Protection of Minors Policy and our campus Procedures for Implementing the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Protection of Minors Policy. The Procedures outline the requirements that apply to all members of our university community, including University personnel, volunteers and contractors associated with events/activities where minors will be involved.

We require that units with programs or activities designed to include minors who are not enrolled at the University report those activities to the University of Illinois Police Department on the supplied forms found at

As reflected in our University’s procedures, units shall not allow any adult person who is responsible for the supervision of minors, or whose duties would require close contact with minors (who are not enrolled or accepted for enrollment at the University) to participate in a University program or activity designed to include minors without verifying the person has undergone a criminal background check and a sex offender registry check. Please review the Procedures for additional information about this requirement.

The University Ethics Office has also produced a 5-minute animated Protection of Minors video to promote and improve awareness of the Protection of Minors Policy, and we encourage the use of this video as a training tool in your unit.

If you have any questions, please contact Chris Carr at Illinois Human Resources, 333-2137, or

Best Regards,

Elyne Cole
Associate Provost for Human Resources
