Learn more about the training requirements for individuals working with children and vulnerable adults

Creighton University adopted the Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy to ensure that departments, student organizations, and outside groups have adequately prepared for the supervision and responsibility of working with children and vulnerable adults.  This policy applies to program and events both on and off campus where children or vulnerable adults are the target audience.

Who are defined as children or vulnerable adults?

Children are minors under the age of 19 and vulnerable adults are adults with a substantial functional or mental impairment.

What is required for an organization, department, or program to offer an activity or event intended for children or vulnerable adults?

This policy requires the program or activity to be registered with the University and that each employee, volunteer, or representative successfully complete required training and a background check as needed.  This must all be completed prior to the start of the program or activity for the individual to be authorized.

How does an organization, department or program register their event?

Any event or activity must be registered at least two weeks in advance.  This allows time for participants to complete all requirements ahead of the event.  To register your program or event, please visit Steps to Registering Your Program.
