Releases of Liability

Releases of Liability

Signed releases of liability are recommended if the University sponsors an event or activity that is voluntary and/or potentially dangerous, or when outside groups use University facilities. Examples of this include ropes courses, field trips, sports participation or high school groups’ use of labs or other facilities. Such releases are signed by either the participating organization or by individual participants (or their parents, in the case of minors). These releases reduce the University’s liability and shift responsibility to the participant. Contact Risk Management to obtain release forms.
