Youth Protection Policy
Policy for the Norman Campus
The University of Oklahoma has numerous campus locations and a variety of events that attract minors, whether sponsored by the University or by third parties. This policy is meant to serve as guidance for these valuable experiences. Please note, this policy may not encompass each and every encounter with a minor and should be flexible depending on the circumstances and with the approval of either a supervisor in charge of the area or facility or by the Risk Management Department in coordination with the Office of Legal Counsel.

In response to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Youth Protection Committee has created the University Virtual Programs Youth Protection Policy and Release forms that can be utilized for University sponsored programs for minors if employees wish to host activities in a virtual format.
Youth Protection training for OU employees and students is now self-enroll and can be taken online through the OnPoint Library under the Risk Management Training topic. Found here: OnPoint
However, if you are required to take the training on an annual basis by your department, then you can request an ePAF by contacting your HR/Payroll coordinator for your department.
In addition, related checklists and forms for events involving minors are collected as separate documents for ease of use and submission. Please read “Youth Protection Policy” for the Norman Campus for more information about the checklists and forms. Submission information is below.
