“Reporting Child Abuse” Training

Penn State requires all employees to take training on how to recognize and report suspected child abuse, through Policy AD72. Students and volunteers who are considered "authorized adults" (those who work with children and have responsibility for children's programs) also are required to take the training.

The mandatory training course, "Building a Safe Penn State: Reporting Child Abuse," is available online. For complete details about this training requirement, see the Office of Ethics and Compliance website.
