Waivers & Contracts

Voluntary Release of Liability Form

When a University sponsored event is arranged by faculty, staff, or students in sanctioned student organizations, all participants must complete and sign a copy of the voluntary release of liability form specific to that activity. The responsible office/department must keep the signed release forms on file for a minimum of 3 years. A copy of the Voluntary Release of Liability Form must be completed and sent to Risk Management, which reserves the right to audit copies of signed release forms held by departments. Any questions regarding specific risks for an activity can be directed to Melissa Diaz at mddiaz2@usfca.edu or by phone: (415) 422-5899.

Contract Review

All contracts need to be reviewed by both the Office of General Counsel and Risk management in the Office of Accounting and Business Services, prior to signing.
