Please see the attached memo on “Reporting Suspected Child Abuse and Maltreatment” from CUNY’s General Counsel & Sr. Vice Chancellor Frederick P. Schaffer. It begins:
This memorandum updates and replaces our 2004 memorandum on the subject of suspected child abuse and maltreatment reporting options. On occasions, college officials have consulted the Office of General Counsel in connection with a suspected case of child abuse. A suspected perpetrator of abuse may be the parent or guadian of the child, or a college or related entity employee. The purpose of this memorandum is to describe the obligations of those individuals who are mandated by law to report incidents of abuse, as well as to set forth CUNY’s policy for those employees who are not statutorily mandated reporters.
Please note that the hotline information and the form for follow-up reporting are both included in this memo.
