Liability insuarance

By August 28, 2013

Some student organization events/activities, both on and off campus, may involve potential for
risk. A review of current case law suggests that in addition to the student organization as a group,
individual members and officers may incur some liability in the event of a claim. Student
organizations, particularly those involved in potentially hazardous activities, are encouraged to
investigate the purchase of liability insurance for their group’s activities.

Activities taking place on campus will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and student
organizations may be required to purchase liability insurance if it is determined that a campus
event involves some degree of risk or liability. Contact Student Life for specific information.
Additionally, the Office of Risk Management may be of assistance.
