The Office of Youth Safety & Compliance is a new department in the Division of Student Affairs focused on policies for all youth programs affiliated with Oregon State University, which includes the more than 270 youth-centered programs within OSU Extension and about 200 more campus-based youth programs.

Interim Vice Provost for Student Affairs Dan Larson, and Marilyn Lesmeister, Volunteer Development and Risk Management Specialist for OSU Extension Service and interim Co-Director of the Office of Youth Safety & Compliance, join Vice Provost Scott Reed for this month’s First Monday Update.

The new Office of Youth Safety & Compliance will provide easy access to OSU youth safety policies, best practices, resources, and one location for links to OSU safety-related forms. The office will communicate with Extension professionals and visit programs to identify ways to support youth safety effectively. The Office of Youth Safety & Compliance will be a valuable partner to Extension programs involving youth.

  1. Hi all! OSU is lucky to have Marilyn’s expertise to share with the whole university, not just the 4-H program. As we know, the OSU 4-H program offers a multitude of opportunities to put youth on the path to higher education, and specifically programs like Summer Conference that get kids on campus are very effective!

    • You’re right on both counts, Deb! Marilyn’s a great asset to Extension and Extension helps kids and families think about and be successful accessing higher education.
