Wellesley College is committed to safeguarding all children and youth (anyone under the age of 18) involved in our programs or on our campus. The Policy on Safety and Well-Being of Minors and related procedures provides direction to all employees, students, contractors, vendors and volunteers and others who interact with minors about expected codes of behavior and sound procedures. This Policy covers all operations, programs and activities of Wellesley College that involve minors, including educational, outreach, summer programs, athletic programs, art, theater and any other operations whether on or off the premises of Wellesley.
Wellesley College will not tolerate any abuse or neglect of a minor in any form (physical, sexual, or emotional) in any Wellesley program or on the Wellesley campus. The Policy and related procedures are intended to ensure that child protection concerns will be properly addressed and reported and that our programs for children will be safe.
