In its role, Five Colleges, Incorporated (FCI) facilitates the administration of a wide array of academic and administrative programs for the benefit of faculty, students, and staff at its Member institutions, as well as promoting a thriving intellectual and cultural local community. FCI may provide funding, staffing, or other forms of support to aid the Member campuses in implementing such programs. FCI itself does not host any programming involving Minors independently of the Member campuses.
Like its Member campuses, FCI is committed to ensuring that programs are appropriately managed and occur in environments that are safe and secure, including for Minor persons under 18 years of age. FCI has zero tolerance for the mistreatment or abuse of Minors in its Programs, and in Programs that FCI supports.
FCI has developed a minor safety policy to promote the safety of Minors engaged with FCI and its Member campuses. Under this policy, FCI requires programs that receive FCI funding or other material support to declare and register any Program that falls within a host campus’ own minor safety policy. FCI will not host any activity, event, workshop, or other interaction that requires registration and that cannot be registered with a Member campus.
