“Indiana University implemented a policy effective April 30, 2012 regarding working with children. This policy states, “Programs must ensure that all faculty and academic staff, staff, students, volunteers, or other personnel who will work with children have been subject to a criminal background check and sex offender registry check within the last three years. Background and sex offender registry checks must be repeated at least every three years thereafter. Individual programs or units may require more frequent updates.”
“A program may not allow the participation in the program of any academic, faculty, staff, hourly employee, student, volunteer or other personnel whose criminal background check and/or sex offender registry check includes a record of sexually based offenses or crimes against children.”
The details of the administration of the background checks and policing of the policy are subject to change and are communicated to student individually.
