Mandated Reporter Requirements

Illinois Wesleyan University students completing clinical hours in the schools are mandated reporters. Therefore all students enrolled in Education 225, Music 132, or first techniques course must complete the on-line training course for Mandated Reporters concurrent with course enrollment.
