Child protection

SUNY Oswego is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of children who participate in University-related programs and activities whether on or off campus. We recognize that children visit our campus to participate in a variety of programs such as sports camps, theatre productions, academic and personal enrichment programs, tutoring and many more.  

SUNY has established two system-wide policies aimed at protecting children at SUNY facilities and in SUNY programs.

The SUNY Child Protection Policy, set protocols and mandates for SUNY Oswego to follow when the care, custody, control and supervision of a child has been vested in the University during a sponsored program; and the SUNY Policy on Mandatory Prevention and Reporting of Child Sexual Abuse aimed at the reporting of child sexual abuse for all University activities on and off University property.
