Protecting Minors

Each of us plays a part in protecting minors.  The College offers programs and activities that minors attend and in which they participate.  The protection of Minors Policy addresses the protection and safety of minors in these programs and activities and establishes procedures for reporting known or suspected abuse or neglect of minors.

Members of the Emerson community interact with minors in a variety of ways, including as prospective and enrolled students, employees, interns, visitors, and participants in programs or activities.  These interactions may occur on or off-campus. 

Every member of the Emerson community who knows, suspects, or receives information indicating that a minor has been or is being abused or neglected must report this information to the College.
