Programs for Minors on Campus
HSC provides opportunities for young inquisitive minds through programs aimed to educate and promote interest in higher education. The programs introduce children and youth to emerging technology tools as well as teaching them transferable skills that will help them pursue careers in the medical sciences.
The Minors on Campus policy and processes help to ensure a positive environment that promotes health, wellness, safety, and security for children and teens.
To comply with all federal and state laws and regulations, the Office to Integrity and Awareness oversees the Minors on Campus process and participation requirements for all faculty, staff and students. This includes event and program registration, minimum staff ratios and parental consent and criminal background screenings.
