Midwestern State University is committed to providing a safe campus environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Although the university admits relatively few students under the age of 18, minors regularly participate in special camps and programs on the MSU campus. The university provides training for faculty, staff, and volunteers on strategies for recognizing, preventing, and reporting child abuse and neglect in accordance with state law.
Within five days of employment, every employee or volunteer working in a program involving contact with minors or in a youth camp operated on or by the campus of the University must successfully complete a training and examination program on the warning signs and prevention of sexual abuse and child molestation provided by the University and approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
As well as the training, a criminal background check shall be conducted on each applicant, employee, and volunteer hired.
Texas Education Code - Section 51.976 - Sexual Abuse and Child Molestation Prevention Training

Requirements for Camp and Volunteer Workers
Failure to complete the prescribed training and background will result in termination of employment or volunteer service in a capacity involving contact with minors.
