Policies & Risk Management

Each RSO is accountable for the conduct, safety, and general welfare of its members and their guests whenever they represent the organization or are participating in organizational activities.

If an event involves increased potential risk of harm for its participants, RSOs are encouraged to have waivers available for participants to sign. A waiver explains the potential risks and indicates voluntary participation. This does not release RSO's of liability; however it makes participants more aware of the risks associated.

Despite using a waiver, RSOs should still proactively plan for all possible risks, utilizing other methods to ensure safety. A waiver should not be the only form of risk management conducted by your organization.

Please submit your waiver(s) a minimum of 3 weeks in advance of your event for approval to the Student Activities Team.

If you have any questions regarding the use of this form, please contact the Office of Student Involvement at (317) 274-3931.
