SYS 625, Youth Protection and Compliance

This policy establishes the minimum standards for the protection of Minors engaged in Covered Activities throughout the University of Wisconsin System (UW System). The policy outlines each of the components that must be included in UW System institutions’ policies related to protection of Minors engaged in Covered Activities. The policy applies to all UW System institutions, and the scope of the policy is limited to Youth Participants in Covered activities–it does not apply to Minors at institutions for other reasons.
