Minors Program Registration Reminder

The University considers the safety and well-being of youth program participants to be important. As part of its commitment to provide an open and safe campus environment for all, including minors (those under the age of 18), the University needs to identify all programs, events and activities that serve, or otherwise engage, youth. This is a reminder to the community that virtual interactions with minors are included in this commitment.
