Protection of Minors on Campus
Clayton State University is dedicated to the welfare and safety of Minors who visit Clayton State’s campus, who participate in Clayton State’s Programs, or who are entrusted to Clayton State’s care. To promote the protection of Minors, our Protection of Minors on Campus Policy describes the requirements of administrators, faculty, staff, students, volunteers and others who interact with Minors and informs all members of the University community of their obligation to report any instances of known or suspected abuse or neglect of Minors.

Questions about the interpretation or application of this Policy should be raised with Human Resources, which shall update or modify the Policy as necessary and administer and oversee the implementation of the Policy in a manner that best achieves its goals. The Policy may be modified with the approval of the University President and/or their designee to reflect changes in the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia policies law, standards relating to the protection of minors, or University processes, or as otherwise necessary.
Knowing and understanding the Protection of Minors on Campus policy requirements directly correlates to the health, wellness, safety, and security of minors who are entrusted to the University’s care, custody, and control, and ensures all Clayton State University administrators, faculty, staff, students, volunteers and others interacting with Minors in University-Sponsored programs or in programs for Minors held on University property comply with policy and undergo proper training.
Mandated staff members (or any person who believes on reasonable grounds) must make a report as soon as practicable after forming a belief on reasonable grounds that a minor is in need of protection from significant harm as a result of physical injury, neglect, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse.
