Waivers or releases of liability are designed to protect the university and its employees from legal liability for injuries that may occur to students or other individuals who participate in both voluntary and required activities on and off campus. Waivers signed prior to participation are viewed by the law as contracts or agreements in which the participant agrees to excuse the university and its employees from fault or liability for personal injuries associated with the activity.
