Centralized standards of practice

Concerns over
Athletic Department
background checks
discussed
By ANDREW ALMANI
Daily Staff Reporter
The Senate Advisory Commit-
tee on University Affairs spent
much of its meeting Monday
afternoon in private executive
session, discussing a range of
policy issues with guests.
The first topic of the execu-
tive session was the Univer-
sity's Standard Practice Guide
on minors. With the consider-
able number of students who
are minors on campus, the Uni-
versity is looking to examine its
policy and identify any necessary
adjustments.
The University consolidated
its policies in January into a
more centralized one. The new
measure makes background

checks mandatory for employees
working with children.
In October 2013, University
President Mary Sue Coleman
addressed the safety of minors
at a SACUA meeting, taking into
consideration the sexual abuse
scandal of children at Pennsylva-
nia State University.
"Every department probably
engages with minors in some
way on campus, so it's obviously
a tough situation," Coleman said.
There was some concern after
a panel found that the Univer-
sity Athletic Department failed
to perform national-level back-
ground checks for employees
of summer camps. Coleman
assured the committee that
background checks are consis-
tently performed.
At a meeting at the Univer-
sity's athletic campus in Sep-
tember 2013, Athletic Campus
Administrator Katie Miranto
was concerned about how the
program handled its background
check policies.
"I can't even describe to you

how many gaps there are and
how nervous I get over the sum-
mer,"Miranto said in September.
"It's very hard to sleep."
Kate Rychlinski, assistant
director of risk management;
Paul Moggach, director of risk
management; Kelly Cunning-
ham, director of public affairs
and Assistant General Counsel
Donica Varner joined SACUA to
discuss these policies.
Other matters in executive
session included SACUA Nomi-
nations, the Honorary Degree
Selection Committee and the
University Secretary.
The Committee also dis-
cussed the approval of a nomi-
nation form for new SACUA
members. SACUA Chair Karen
Staller urged members to nomi-
nate friends and colleagues they
believe would perform well in
the needed roles.
Instead of going to its sched-
uled meeting in Dearborn next
week, SACUA members decided
to have their usual meeting at the
University.
