Abstract

Child maltreatment reporting laws and policies fail to provide a clear and consistent platform for the mandated reporter to comfortably execute and implement a more secure child protection centric environment for the higher education system. To improve reporting of child maltreatment in higher education, we developed a framework for a model child protection governance policy for higher education institutions. The framework focuses on a culture of child and institutional and other stakeholder protection. As higher education organizations face governance challenges, this theoretical article makes several contributions to organizational governance and ethics, including reform addressing the viability of higher education systems.
