Insurance Matters

Providing & ensuring adequate insurance coverage against risk & liability is critical, relative to all University Corporation, San Francisco State’s (UCorp) activities. UCorp requires proof of insurance from most vendors/contractors providing services (possibly including those making deliveries), on all SF State campus sites (i.e. also DTC & EOS).

Regardless of estimated costs, a risk evaluation is required for all activities/events sponsored by UCorp programs.

It is important that contracts, agreements, and MOU’s are reviewed to ensure stated insurance requirements are reasonable and may be met, as well as ensuring the other party is adequately insured.

UCorp continues to work closely with the University’s Risk Management department, as we wish to not be over-insured or have double coverage.

UCorp’s insurance requirements, mitigating risk & liability, are outlined at: Insurance Requirements Indemnification

Special Event Insurance

  • Special Events coverage may be needed, or
  • Determination may be made that Participant Accident Insurance is better suited for planned activities

The Special Event form must be completed for events funded using UCorp funds taking place on or off SF State property. Please
submit this form at least 14 calendar days (2 weeks) before the event date to allow for sufficient time to process review.

Proof of Insurance

The University Corporation is insured for its general liability, workers' compensation, professional liability, motor vehicle liability, and property exposures. If proof of coverage is required by written agreement being executed with a third-party, please contact Tammie Ridgell (
