Risk Management


Risk Management is a cooperative effort between the Risk Management, Environment Health & Safety (EHS) and Emergency Management Offices, as well as with the University Police Department, Campus Safety Committee, Building Evacuation Coordinators, and all of the management, faculty and staff working at CSUSB.

The Risk Management function on the CSUSB campus has been authorized by the Chancellor's Office through California State University Risk Management Policy, Executive Order 1069 and other risk-related guidance issued by the CSU. CSUSB has established a risk management policy to reduce the risk of loss exposures to the university. This risk management program provides a process for planning, organizing, leading, and controlling campus activities in order to minimize the adverse effects of losses.

Our mission is to reduce losses without unnecessarily limiting activities that advance CSUSB's mission and goals.

Where are the Student Travel forms kept after they are collected? How Long?

The completed and signed Student Travel forms are to be kept for a minimum of three (3) years in the field trip sponsor's academic department. For minors, the form should be kept a minimum of three years, or until the minor turns 20 (whichever is longer).  If a claim is filed during this period, the department will be requested to provide a copy of the participant's signed waiver of liability form.


How often do the Student Travel Informed Consents Forms need to be completed?

Each student participant should complete this Student Travel Waiver of Liability and Hold Harmless Agreement for each University sponsored trip or activity.


What if there are multiple trips associated with a course?

Consult Risk Management proper to executing a blanket waiver.  That said, if a student participates in multiple field trip activities in a given semester, list the multiple activities (if they’re similar in nature), including dates of each, on the waiver of liability form.


What is the purpose of the hold harmless clause on the waiver of liability forms?

A hold harmless clause on a liability waiver form may have legal standing in any court of law. The participant's signature on the waiver form means that the participant will not sue the University if the participant suffers any damage or loss as a result of participating in the activity. The purpose of the hold harmless clause is to discourage claims against the University.
