Student Internship Insurance

Posted on Tuesday, October 21st, 2014 by Tammy under Students.

Many students are working outside of the university as interns on behalf of the university as part of their required curriculum in their course of studies. The university’s liability insurance will not extend to the students while they are working outside of the university, however, there is still an exposure for liability risks to the student. In order to help protect the student, in many cases, the university requires the interns to purchase liability insurance.  The policy can be found here.

The University Student Intern Insurance Program provides coverage for an insured party that becomes legally liable to pay damages because of property damage, bodily injury, or personal injury due to their participation in a university internship program to which the policy applies. In health related occupations, this insurance will also pay those sums, which an insured party becomes legally obligated because of any act, error, or omission in the rendering of or failure to render professional services in conjunction with an internship. This program also includes a medical expense benefit to participants.

This coverage is automatically added to all internship, clinical or practicum courses.  If an exception is made in other courses for a student to get credit for an internship, coverage can be requested by contacting the Office of Institutional Risk Management.  This coverage is purchased on a per semester basis.
