About Youth Protection

Office of Youth Protection and Compliance

Many departments on campus sponsor programs involving minors (individuals under 18 years of age) such as academic programs throughout the year, summer camps, internships, and school visits. Both RIT and the greater community benefit from these activities which introduce young people to the exciting academic and recreational resources available here.

RIT is committed to the safety and well-being of minors engaged in these activities and programs held on campus and in RIT-sponsored activities across the community, and as such, all programs must comply with C26.0 Protection of Minors on Campus Policy.

The Office of Youth Protection and Compliance provides guidance on best practices, training, and resources that allow program directors to provide fun and stimulating educational experiences for youth in a safe and supportive environment. This also provides parents, guardians, and educators an assurance that we will provide a quality learning opportunity for their children and students.
