Minors in Duke Programs

Background Checks

All adults who will be interacting with Minors as part of a Program must complete a Duke Background Check at least every 3 years. Some programs at their discretion might require more frequent checks.

The link to request a background check cannot be accessed on our website. All individuals who are registered as program staff for a Minors Program will automatically receive an email which includes the link to request that a background check be run. Once an individual completes the form requesting that a background check be run, it can take 3-10 days before we receive the results. If you have questions about your background check, please contact bgcc@duke.edu

If you believe there is a compelling reason why the background checks for your program should be conducted by an independent background check vendor instead of by Duke HR's Background Check Center, please contact the Youth Protection Coordinator at youthprotection@duke.edu.
