Registered Student Organizations are considered independent organizations and are not protected by Miami University's liability insurance policies. Should a participant be injured or property damaged during an event sponsored by an RSO, the organization, its officers and its members may be found responsible for payment of monetary damages.
To protect the RSOs and their members, Miami University may require organziations to purchase liability insurance for events held on a Miami campus. Events involving physical activity or competition, attendance by large numbers of students, attendance by persons who are not Miami students, and use of games, rides or other amusements will require purchase of a policy of insurance.
Insurance may also be purchased for events held off campus.
Event planners must register their events at www.muohio.edu/hub. A risk assessment is included in the registration. For events requiring liability insurance, organizers will be directed to the CampusConnexions website.
