Liability Release and Waivers

Departments and units can use liability releases and waivers to guard against legal liability associated with hosting events or running programs.

  • The Office of Risk Management suggests requiring participant waivers when the activity poses a higher degree of risk, such as athletic events or travel programs
  • The Office of Risk Management can help your group develop an appropriate release and waiver tailored to your event
  • Events involving minors require an additional level of caution and parental approval
