Higher education youth protection operates most effectively as a collaboration -- within an institution, a community and state, and the country. It also has international dimensions. The Affiliations Committeeidentifies organizations that share common purposes to develop appropriate partnerships and affiliations. We seek to learn from other groups and to share resources, to enhance the strength of our organization and our effectiveness in protecting youth and other vulnerable populations.
The Communications Committee is responsible for maintaining multi-modal channels to share timely and relevant information. The Committee oversees all communication tools and coordinates communication strategies that advance the mission of HEPNet. It works to enhance the quality, reach, and general effectiveness of our communications to both internal and external target audiences.
The finance committee will serve as the fiscal stewards of HEPNet by establishing budgets, complying with budgets, leading audits, and providing sound fiscal guidance.
The Membership Committee develops new and innovative ways to recruit, encourage, and retain members, as well as encourage and facilitate active participation of all members for the mutual benefit of the Network and all those affiliated with it.
The Organizational Oversight Committee is responsible for all nomination processes by or for HEPNet, reviewing bylaws, and general oversight of accountability.
Organizational Oversight Committee
The Program Committee provides various multi-modal engagement and educational opportunities for members to learn, network, and contribute knowledge and experiences to the field of youth protection.
The Resources Committee compiles and makes available useful comparative information on youth protection policies and practices in higher education institutions, including creation and management of a resource library. As needed, the Committee assists members in conducting one-time surveys of members on topics not already addressed in the benchmarking.
