Reporting Child Abuse

Penn State University requires all University employees who have reasonable suspicion of abuse to make a report, with an exception to any confidential communications made to a University-employed attorney, or confidential communication made to University-employed member of the clergy. The Penn State Hershey Medical Center campus (including the College of Medicine), the client representation clinics of the Dickinson School of Law, the Psychological Clinic, and University Health Services will follow separate policies that reflect their unique activities.

Penn State Policy AD72 provides guidance to University employees, regarding mandated reporting requirements, per the University and the Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law.
