In this edition, we’d like to acknowledge Melissa Dagley, Ed.D., Executive Director – UCF STEM, for her continuous support of the university’s Youth Protection Program. As a member of the initial UCF Youth Protection Workgroup led by our office, Dr. Dagley served as a key partner in the development of the university-wide Youth Protection Program.  Drawing from her experience in hosting youth programs here at UCF, she provided key insights which helped inform our youth protection training, the functionality of the Squire registration system, and the components of the background check screening requirements. Once the Youth Protection Policy was implemented, she served as an advocate for the program, communicating the requirements with others at the university. She continues to provide valuable insight into the development of youth programs, assists other youth programs with meeting policy requirements, and provides feedback on youth program best practices throughout the growing changes of today’s social landscape.

We are grateful to have Dr. Dagley as a collaborative partner in this important compliance area. Thank you for all that you do to keep our Littlest Knights safe while participating in programs at UCF.
