Minors Participating in Campus Programs Policy

Spelman College is committed to ensuring a safe and supportive environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors to campus. Activities involving minors are integral to our community engagement efforts.

The College offers many coordinated opportunities for minor children to visit campus through scheduled campus events, academic and non-academic programs, or as guests. Spelman recognizes its legal and institutional obligations to safeguard the wellbeing of minors on campus, in Spelman facilities, participating in college-sponsored events.
