The University of Otago is committed to the well-being of children and young people and the protection of at-risk and vulnerable children.

The University’s Child Protection Policy:

  • provides guidance for staff and students who become aware of child abuse or neglect in the course of their University work, and
  • prescribes Vulnerable Children Act-compliant safety checking requirements for staff, students and other University representatives who work with children or young people (aged under 18 years) in the context of particular regulated services.
