Northwestern uses a variety of measures to safeguard the minors participating in Northwestern-sponsored programs and in non-University programs taking place on campus.
Use this page to learn about the requirements for these programs.
For Northwestern-Sponsored Programs
Staff members who interact with minors are required to complete training, undergo a background check and familiarize themselves with safety guidelines.
Program directors or administrators must complete an online registration for all programs and activities involving minors.
For Non-Northwestern Programs
External organizations managing programs on the Northwestern campus must ensure their programs are consistent with the Minors at Northwestern Policy.
