Minors on Campus: Underage Students at Community Colleges

General Concerns
Educational Policies Committee

In addition to recommendations regarding the involvement of faculty in developing board policies related to the admission and enrollment of minors, this paper includes recommendations for mandated reporter training regarding child abuse for all faculty and clear notification of faculty when there are minors in their courses. The Academic Senate should work with the System Office for legal clarification on issues of liability related to having minors enrolled on campus and bring the work of the 2003 Minors in Higher Education Task Force to the Consultation Council for review and consideration of further action.
