Many college and universities have minors present on campus for a variety of reasons. Minors may be on campus touring, participating in a summer camp, attending classes through a credit program, or attending an athletic event. Such presence can be beneficial for both the college or university and the minor. However, these situations can also pose legal issues for college and university administrators who may be responsible for their safety and security while on campus. Many campuses have policies addressing these issues, which may address various issues such as release forms or background checks.

Please join Rick Verstegen for a presentation focusing on the various legal considerations that are raised with minors on campus, including adult supervision, internet use, and confidentiality issues.

  • Understand the various methods of addressing a minor’s discipline or removal from a program or activity
