Child Protection Policy Training

This online class introduces you to the Child Protection Policy, which is designed to support UB’s commitment to protect the safety and welfare of children on campus.

Running Time: 30 minutes

While most university programs and activities are intended for individuals of legal adult age, UB sponsors many programs for children including childcare, sports camps and academic enrichment activities. Members of the UB community may also work with children as part of their work or academic obligations. This course outlines how these types of UB programs and activities carry increased obligations to safeguard children on campus. Learn what you need to do if you are involved with children as part of your job at UB.
