Waiver/Assumption of Risk

The Assumption of Risk, Release from Liability and Indemnification (“waiver”) form may be used for domestic or international programs, activities or trips organized and/or run by Yale, by a registered student organization, by a Residential College or by an outside organization for Yale participants.  The organizer is responsible for collecting copies of properly completed waivers from all participants and forwarding them to the Office of Enterprise Risk Management.

The Travel Preparation Worksheet is a companion to the waiver for those programs, activities, or trips that involve international travel.  The purpose of the worksheet is to assist the traveler in learning about and preparing appropriately for the risks of travel to the countries where he or she will be going.  The organizer is responsible for collecting and maintaining copies of properly completed worksheets from all participants involved in international travel.

Programs for children and youth run by members of the Yale community should refer to the Yale Programs for Children and Youth website for policies and procedures, including permission and release forms appropriate for such programs.

For more information or if you have any questions about these forms, please contact Marjorie Lemmon  at 203-432-0140.
