SMU Program Coordinators and Camp Operators

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

3:00-4:30 p.m.

This review session is coordinated by the SMU Office of Risk Management in partnership with SMU Office of Legal Affairs, SMU Police Department, SMU Human Resources and the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC).

Each year SMU offers a review session for those employees who are involved with hosting or coordinating camps for minors, either in SMU facilities or off-campus.

If you fall within the following role definitions, you are strongly encouraged to attend this seminar.

campCamp Operators:  those hosting camps for minors either in SMU facilities or off campus

Program Coordinators: SMU employees who coordinate camps in SMU facilities or off campus, on behalf of others (either SMU employees or non-employees utilizing SMU facilities)

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Best practices to ensure a healthy camp atmosphere
  • Reporting abuse, should you see or hear about it
  • The State of Texas requirement for all camp employees to be trained by an approved training vendor
  • SMU’s policy on the Duty to Report and your responsibility for record-keeping to minimize risk for yourself and the University
  • Accessing the training program resources SMU provides to employees, non-employees, students and volunteers

Please note this review session is NOT intended to replace the State mandated training. Those hosting camps must have completed the state training within 2 years of the start of the camp session.  

Please review your training summary in my.SMU and email if you need to retake the training to meet the state requirement. Once your email is received, HR will enroll you in the training and you will receive an email from Lawroom on behalf of SMU announcing that the training is assigned and ready for you to access.

General questions about this workshop or non-SMU people who must complete the training may be directed to the Office of Risk Management at

Questions regarding training for SMU employees (including student workers) or accessing the training should be directed to HR at
