II. Scope

This Policy provides guidelines that apply broadly to interactions between minors and University students, faculty, staff, and volunteers1
in University-sponsored or -affiliated programs or activities. This Policy also establishes requirements for non-University organizations and entities that operate programs or activities involving minors on campus, at other University locations, and University agreements with such organizations and entities shall reflect these requirements. Independent contractors who have routine contact with minors on campus or at other University locations are also subject to this Policy. All Robert Morris University students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and third parties are responsible for understanding and complying with this Policy. Appendices to this Policy set forth specific requirements and procedures. This Policy does not apply to general public events where parents/guardians are expected to provide supervision of minors. The guidelines contained in the Policy do not and cannot outline every situation or circumstance that may be encountered involving minors on campus or at other University locations.

This Policy is administered by the Human Resources Department.
