Minors at Cornell Policy

Cornell University expects all members of the university community to create and maintain a safe and ethical environment for minors, through appropriate background checks, training, reporting, and control of access to university facilities.

Cornell promotes and provides a standard of operation that is in compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations regarding minors, demonstrates sound fiscal responsibility, and reduces institutional liability. Toward that end, the university seeks to maintain and continuously improve a safe and ethical environment for minors, free from the threat of physical injuries, emotional harm, abuse, and neglect. Additionally, the university wishes to encourage all faculty, staff, and students to become supporters for actively creating a safe environment.
