Responsibility and Liability
The University of Louisville and its staff assume no liability for Student Organizations and Councils student events. Student Organization and Council leaders and members should educate themselves about potential legal liability and consequences regarding alcohol consumption and accidents resulting in personal injury or death. The University strongly encourages student groups to maintain contact with national governing organizations regarding advice on best current practice(s).
- Sponsoring Student Organizations and Councils are strongly encouraged to obtain group liability insurance or assure that they are covered under a group liability plan provided by larger sponsoring organizations (i.e. national fraternities and sororities)
- Advisors/supervisors, officers and group members should also carry individual liability or be covered under group insurance plans.
