All programs vary significantly, and UCF is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all programs associated with the university. The Youth Protection Program sets forth standards and expectations for providing a safe environment for all minors and to ensure all persons understand how to minimize the threat of child abuse and neglect, recognize the signs of child abuse and neglect, and respond promptly and effectively should child abuse and neglect be observed, suspected, or disclosed.
