Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect
DATE: January 18, 2013
TO: All Campus Employees
FROM: Karen Haynes, President
SUBJECT: Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect—Executive Order 1083
The Chancellor’s Office recently issued Executive Order 1083, which became effective on January 1, 2013. Executive Order 1083 provides systemwide direction to the CSU campuses on implementing the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA), which was amended on December 21, 2012. The executive order is available for downloading at http://www.calstate.edu/eo/EO-1083.pdf.
Executive Order 1083 identifies all CSU employees as mandated reporters of child abuse or neglect. As a designated mandated reporter, whenever an employee, in his/her professional capacity or within the course of his/her employment, has knowledge of or reasonably suspects child abuse or neglect has occurred, the employee must report the incident.
I’ve asked Ms. Joanne Shydian, Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Payroll Services to serve as the campus’ Mandated Reporting Coordinator for staff, student assistants, and MPPs. She will work closely with Ms. Michelle Hunt, Interim Assistant Vice President for Faculty Affairs, who will be responsible for all unit 3 faculty and unit 11 student employees, and Ms. Michelle Hinojosa, UARSC Director of Human Resources who will be responsible for UARSC employees.
Early next week, detailed information will be provided to all employees, along with mandatory forms and instruction on how to report suspected child abuse or neglect. Also, employees can learn more about their reporting obligations by attending one of the following informational sessions:
- Wednesday, Jan. 23, 1 to 2 p.m., Commons 206
- Thursday, Jan. 24, 1 to 2 p.m., Commons 206
These informal sessions are open to all staff, MPPs, faculty, and student employees, and I encourage you to attend. In addition, the Chancellor’s Office is in the process of creating a systemwide training model, which we anticipate will be available in coming weeks.
Staff, MPPs and student assistants with questions can contact Joanne Shydian at 760.750.4954 or email@example.com; all unit 3 faculty and unit 11 student employees should contact Michelle Hunt at 760.750.8820 or firstname.lastname@example.org; UARSC employees with questions can contact Michelle Hinojosa at 760.750.3511 or email@example.com.
