Events and Activities

Events and activities are an integral part of the educational experience on a university campus. The Office of Risk Management (ORM) is here to be your partner in identifying potential exposures or losses and developing the most effective plans and solutions for your event or activity.

As unit within Business Services, ORM provides risk management consultation and resources to the university community for a wide variety of activities. Our goal is to minimize the risk of loss to the university by:

  • Identifying sources of loss
  • Assessing the impact of losses
  • Selecting or recommending risk management options
  • Implementing risk management strategies
  • Monitoring risk management solutions for effectiveness

We collaborate with faculty, staff and students to help you meet your goals while still protecting the university. Working together we can accomplish both.

Events on Campus

All non-university organizations using ISU facilities for their organization's event or activity must provide ISU with a certificate of insurance. An Insurance Fact Sheet is available from ORM to assist outside organizations in meeting ISU's insurance requirements. The fact sheet details the insurance requirements that must be included on the certificate including coverage limits, additional insureds, etc. The organization should share the fact sheet with their insurance agent to make sure the certificate being issued meets our specifications. Departments arranging the use of ISU facilities on behalf of outside organizations need to work with both Facilities Planning and Management and the Office of Risk Management to coordinate a Facilities Use Agreement and the appropriate insurance documentation to protect the university.
