Many departments on campus sponsor programs involving minors, from internships to school field trips to summer camps. Both RIT and the greater community benefit from programs that introduce young people to the exciting academic and recreational resources available on campus.
The following guidelines were developed as best practices for hosting minors on campus. In some cases, programs require compliance with New York public health childrens' camp laws. In all cases, these programs should comply with C26.0 Protection of Minors on Campus Policy. In addition to the guidelines below, please refer to the RIT K-12 website.
- Summer and Overnight Camps
- Internships and Lab Visits
- Minors in RIT Housing
- School Visits
- Workshops and Programs for K-12 Students
