Abuse Law

REPORTING ABUSE OF A MINOR ON COLLEGE PROPERTY OR DURING ANY COLLEGE SPONSORED ACTIVITY OR EVENT

Under Florida Law, all persons have a legal obligation to report suspected instances of child abuse, neglect or abandonment, regardless of whether an alleged perpetrator is the child's parent, legal custodian, caregiver or other person responsible for the child's welfare.

Any student, employee or visitor to the campus who has knowledge of, or has reasonable cause to suspect, the abuse, neglect or abandonment of a minor shall report such knowledge or suspicion to the Florida Department of Children and Family through its Florida Abuse Hotline.

If you suspect or know of an instance where a child was abused, neglected or abandoned on college property during a college sponsored activity, event or function, you must immediately report that information to Campus Security and the Provost on your campus and report such information on the Florida Abuse Hotline (1-800-962-2873 or online via the website).
