Protection of Minors
In October 2012, Georgetown University adopted a Protection of Minors Policy, which provides guidelines to protect those under 18 years of age who participate in programs and activities associated with the University and to provide guidance to University students, faculty and staff who are involved with such programs and activities.These guidelines apply to programs across Georgetown campuses, including the Law Center.
Our community offers a range of programs and activities that involve minors in support of their academic, social, and cultural enrichment, and these programs are integral to the University's mission and identity. At the core of all of these programs is a commitment to providing a safe environment and a positive experience for all participants. The Policy sets forth guidelines to help prevent the abuse or neglect of minors and for reporting and responding to incidents in which the safety of minors may be compromised. In addition, the policy imposes on those who participate in programs or activities involving minors certain requirements that must be met in advance of the start date of the program or activity.
Dean of Students Mitchell Bailin oversees implementation of the Protection of Minors Policy at the Law Center for student-sponsored programs.
