General University Insurance Protection

Faculty and staff are covered by blanket bond protection, general liability insurance and errors and omissions insurance while working. If you are sued during the good faith performance of your duties, the University's insurance provides legal counsel and indemnification (protection against possible damage or legal suit).

If you are involved in an accident while operating a personally owned vehicle or a vehicle leased in your name, liability protection will be governed by your automobile insurance coverage, not by UVM's. If you are involved in an accident while operating a vehicle owned or leased in the name of the University, you must report the accident to your supervisor immediately who must then report it to Risk Management (656-3242) and Police Services (656-3473).

Your personal property, whether used to perform your assigned duties or not, is not covered by UVM insurance. It is your sole responsibility.
