Summer Programming at the University of Memphis

As part of the University’s continuing commitment to ensuring the support and safety of children on our campus a new process has been implemented for the approval of University-sponsored youth programs.  In order to operate a University-sponsored youth program, you must register and receive approval in advance. 

Please refer to the Minors on Campus Guidelines to the left or visit the Office of Legal Counsel's page before completing the form. The University defines minors as anyone under the age of 18.

 Departments wishing to operate a summer youth program must first register with Educational Initiatives who will perform a risk management analysis, and if approved, procure final approval from appropriate department heads. 

The registration form can be found here
