UMB-Sponsored Educational Activities Involving Minors Procedures

‌‌‌In September 2013, the University implemented the Policy on UMB-Sponsored Education Activities Involving Minors VI - 99.01(A).

The purpose of the policy is to ensure the safety of minors who participate in University-sponsored educational opportunities and to assist lab supervisors with the oversight of minors.

If you need additional information, please contact Dr. Erin Golembewski.
