As of July 1, 2012, Purdue University instituted a new policy for volunteers. Purdue is committed to providing a safe environment for work, study, and outreach and to upholding the reputation and integrity of the University. To that end, all volunteers will be subject to a background screening that will include, at minimum, a Sex and Violent Offender Registry Check. Any individual listed on a registry that is part of the University’s Sex and Violent Offender Registry Check or who has been convicted of an offense for which he or she must register as a sex or violent offender may not serve as a volunteer. No department/unit may discriminate in selecting volunteers based on race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, genetic information, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, or status as a veteran.

All volunteers are subject to a check of the Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website, the Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry, and/or any other national or state registry that may become available. Anyone appearing on one or more registries is prohibited from providing volunteer services to the University.
Volunteers may not provide services to the University until they have received confirmation from the School that they have been approved to do so. You will be notified within one week if there are any discrepancies.
