Liability Waivers

When a faculty, staff, student, or non-AU individual voluntarily participates in an activity outside their normal class or duties, a waiver of liability may be required. Examples of the kind of activities that may require a waiver include: participating in sports clubs or camps, volunteering on behalf of the University, visiting elementary or high schools, attending out-of-town lectures, or hosting classes on campus for non-AU students. Through waivers, participants are informed of the particular risks involved with the event, and are reminded to abide by University rules while taking part in the activity.

If you are holding a class or event or participating in a function that you feel may require a waiver of liability please contact Risk Management.

If you need a customized waiver for a specific event, please contact:
