Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy

The Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy provides for the appropriate supervision of children and vulnerable adults who are involved in University-sponsored programs and programs held at the University, including the housing of children and vulnerable adults in University residence halls.

 

The policy applies to activities and programs taking place on Creighton’s campus, or under the authority and direction of the University at other locations, in which children and vulnerable adults will be physically present and participating.


Faculty and staff who are working with programs or events involving children and/or vulnerable adults should consult the policy to determine their responsibilities to those individuals and the university.
