Teaching and Classroom Policies and Forms



Courses that involve off-campus activities as a required or optional part of the class — such as work with community partners, field work, field trips, reporting ventures, or media production — can proceed with those activities within existing public health guidelines, and provided that students complete USF’s liability waiver form. The role of these activities in the course, and whether they are required or optional, should be indicated on the course syllabus; instructors may also want to have alternative plans in case in-person activities are suspended. The waiver form, and instructions for completing it, can be found on the Risk Management site. (Please note: Although previously we had different waiver forms for required and voluntary activities, we now use only a single form.) Forms can be submitted to you electronically; please then forward the set of completed forms to your Program Assistant. [Updated 8/19/21]
