Risk/Liability

The safety and well-being of our students, as well as those we serve, is always a priority. The Shaw Center works diligently with the Office of Risk Management and Environmental Health, and Safety, and the University’s Department of Public Safety (DPS)  to establish protocols and procedures to limit risk and liability associated with civic engagement. We also confer with the University’s legal counsel to devise procedures and practices to safeguard student safety and assure the protection of our partners.

Office of Risk Management and the Shaw Center collaborated on the white paper Beyond the Classroom: Experiential Learning Managing Risks Maximizing Rewards which is an excellent source of additional information.
