Working with minors and non-FAU students
FAU is lucky to have the enrollment of many students who are dual enrolled at the FAU High School. These students are participating in undergraduate research and creative activities. With this in mind, FAU has put together some helpful materials for faculty interested in working with these students who may still be under the age of 18. EHS Minors in the lab policy and Volunteer Authorization for treatment of Minors should be reviewed and paperwork submitted to Dr. Frank Novembre, EHS Biological Safety Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) before work begins.
Volunteer Registration and Background Checks: Volunteer registration, risk waiver, and background check paperwork should be completed by the student and faculty member in whose lab the student is working. There is a cost (~ $20 - $65) for the background check and all volunteers are required to have a volunteer background check. All forms should be sent to EMPL@fau.edu (HR for background check) and copy to Ashley Williams (registers volunteers with FAU).
