UW System Administrative Policy 625 Youth Protection and Compliance

UW System Administrative Policy 625 Youth Protection and Compliance went into effect in March 2023. The policy establishes minimum standards for protection of minors engaged in covered activities. UW-Stout has developed procedures to align and meet these needs.  

If your department engages with minors, please see the website below to find out if the activity is a covered activity. After reviewing the scope of the policy, you will be walked through the steps you must take if the activity is covered.  

Note that covered activities include both university-sponsored activites and third-party activities where a department may bring an outside group to campus. In the event of a third party coming to campus and working with youth, the department(s) working directly with the third party have obligations to ensure the third party follows UWSA 625 and UW-Stout policy.

Mental Health Tip of the Week

Mental Health Tips - Being in Nature

“Allow nature’s peace to flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees.” -John Muir

Did you know that spending time outside and in nature can improve your mental state? There is a lot of time spent looking at screens but try and take a few minutes each day to step away from screens and step into nature. Research suggests that spending time in nature can lower stress, improve memory, mood, and attention, and reduce depressive/anxiety symptoms. All these things help address mental health. Here are some suggestions on how you can increase your time in nature:

  • Study outside on nice days. Print out an article instead of reading it on your computer, take your textbooks outside.
  • Eat a meal outside. It’s getting light enough to still see at dinner time. Grab a blanket, some friends, and food and have a picnic.
  • Play outside. With the nicer weather, being outside is more bearable. Take up volleyball, spikeball, or bocce ball after class one day.
  • Go to Devil’s Punch Bowl and see nature in action with the waterfall and stream.
  • Walk on the Red Cedar State Trail.
  • Picnic or disc golf at Wakanda Park.
  • Walk barefoot. If nothing else, just feel the grass between your toes. At least for a minute. Put your shoes back on before walking anywhere or going to class though.
