Lighting up the Holidays

Minors on Campus

At Northern Michigan University, each administrator, staff member, and volunteer is committed to providing a safe and educational experience for the children participating in our programs.

For all university-sponsored youth programs, the program administrator will:

  • Register the program: the program administrator will plan appropriately to ensure completion of the registration process before the program begins (up to 60 days); 
  • Ensure proper criminal background screening, including a check of the sex offender registry(ies);
  • Ensure proper driving history screening;
  • Ensure the established Minors on Campus Code of Conduct is distributed and followed;
  • Use Northern Michigan University approved handbooks, forms, and handouts;
  • Adhere to all reporting obligations; and
  • Ensure that faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and applicable third parties complete required training.
