Program-specific policies and guidelines are required in order to ensure program staff and volunteers know how to handle and respond to situations if they occur during program activities.
We developed a template to help you create your required program-specific policies and guidelines. The template includes numerous topics to consider when creating your program-specific guidelines and is intended to serve as a starting point and a formatting guide.
Because every program is different, these rules and procedures should be tailored to your own needs. There is no set standard that every program should use, so there may be additional areas or factors that your particular program should address based on the type of activities offered.
In addition to the template, programs are encouraged to review the additional guidance below as well as consulting with IU Public Safety staff at firstname.lastname@example.org if needed.
