STUDENT PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE

The University of Akron currently maintains professional liability insurance that can be broken down into two components.  The first is entity coverage that protects the University and its employees and volunteers while acting within the scope of their job duties.  The second is an extension of the entity coverage for students who as part of the educational process take part in field experience assignments or internships.  These students are often asked by their host to provide evidence of professional liability insurance.  If unable to secure insurance through other means, students may contact the Office of Risk Management to buy into this policy and they will be provided with a Certificate of Insurance to satisfy their host site’s requirements.
