The University of Arkansas is strongly committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for children. This policy briefly summarizes important steps to protect children on campus or participating in programs that may be connected with the University, and to comply with applicable legal requirements and institutional policies.

  1. Reporting Suspected Child Maltreatment
    If any University employee or volunteer reasonably suspects or observes child maltreatment, he or she should immediately do the following, (and must immediately do the following if a mandated reporter):
    1. Report, as required by State law, the suspected maltreatment to the state’s Child Abuse Hotline, at 1-800-482-5964.  The hotline is toll-free and is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Mandated reporters may use a report form available online and faxed to 1-501-618-8952 for non-emergency situations.
    2. Report the suspected maltreatment to the University of Arkansas Police Department at 911 or 575-2222. This must occur immediately after the Hotline report  is made. After receiving a report of suspected maltreatment, UAPD shall promptly coordinate an appropriate response with state officials and local law enforcement, as appropriate. In addition, UAPD shall notify the appropriate vice chancellor for any program, location or employee involved in the allegations.
