Insurance Requirements for Third Parties

Whenever the university is involved with a third party or an event that increases the university's exposure to a loss or an accident, we require a Certificate of Insurance from that party. This includes any organization hosting a non-university event or program on campus. If there appears to be significant risk or the duration of the agreement is for an extended period of time, Wilkes University should be named as additional insured.
