Event Background Checks, Waivers and Insurance

Events involving participants under the age of 19 will require waivers from a parent/guardian.  Criminal background checks are required for all adults working with minors for all overnight academic camps/conferences and for all sports camps/conferences.  Events with participants age 19 and over will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis regarding the need for a waiver.  All events with non-USA sponsors held anywhere on University property will provide a certificate of insurance for general liability including coverage for event participants for claims arising out of bodily injury and/or property damage.  This coverage shall be in an amount of no less than $1 million per occurrence/$2 million annual aggregate and the certificate of insurance coverage must name the University of South Alabama as additional insured on the policy. Event insurance may be purchased online at https://tulip.ajgrms.com/QuickQuote.  Please contact the office of Risk Management and Insurance for additional information.
