Protection of Minors

What is the Protection of Minors Program?

University of Cincinnati sponsors programs and activities that are specifically designed for children, for example, summer camps.  The University also makes its facilities available to outside groups and organizations that conduct programs geared toward children.

UC is committed to providing a safe environment for all members of our community as well as all those who participate in programs and activities on campus.   This page is designed to raise awareness of some concerns affecting children and equip us to address such issues appropriately. Begin by watching United Educator's "Shine a Light" video below (10 min), which highlights the importance of this topic and then take the applicable courses below.
