    • 67 people died in Indiana due to domestic violence from 7/2013 – 6/2014

  • Child Protection Policy

    The University of Southern Indiana has implemented a new Child Protection Policy. The policy, frequently asked questions and associated forms are located on the University’s website.

    USI is committed to taking appropriate measures to ensure the safety and well-being of minors participating in University-sponsored activities, both on and off campus.  Online training for all University employees, students and volunteers and University-affiliated organizations is required for policy compliance.

    Online training can be found at myUSI.  After logging in, click the Online Training icon that looks like a yellow certificate found under Eagle Apps on the left side of your myUSI homepage.   Then click the CPP icon that appears on the USI Employee Training page.

Program administrators are those employees who are in charge of and/or oversee any University-related event, activity, etc. designed for and geared toward children.  Program administrators are responsible for that program’s compliance with the Child Protection Policy.
