The University of Colorado Boulder offers many educational, cultural, service learning, volunteer, athletic, and other programs specifically for children. Protection of Children in university Programs for Children is everyone’s responsibility.
In operating Programs for Children, the university’s primary responsibility is to protect the health and safety of participating Children. Program Operators shall design and operate Programs for Children in compliance with state and federal law as well as this policy and related procedures.
An employee who suspects that a Child participating in a Program for Children is being abused, mistreated, or neglected shall report such information to law enforcement immediately and shall also notify the supervisor of the program. University employees who are mandatory reporters under Colorado law (see C.R.S. § 19-3-301) shall report pursuant to the provisions in that law.
This policy applies to all university-operated and university-contracted Programs for Children and to all Unaffiliated Program Operators.
