Guidelines For Volunteers


Volunteers in university-sponsored programs are generally not considered mandated reporters.

However, departments must consider the qualifications or services provided by each volunteer to determine if he or she meets the criteria of a mandated reporter.

Volunteers who direct or manage official university programs could be considered mandated reporters. For example, a volunteer who is a university "official" such as a volunteer who runs a retreat program for kids on behalf of the university, would be considered a mandated reporter.
