Certificates of Insurance Coverage

 

 Coverage:

UF’s insurance coverage is through the State Risk Management Trust Funds (Chapter 284, Part II, Section 768.28, and Florida Statutes) which provides Bodily Injury and Property Damage liability insurance for the negligent acts or omissions of our employees and designated volunteers in the course and scope of employment. 

 

  • A volunteer is any person who of his own will, provides goods or services to the named insured, with no monetary or material compensation as outlined in the university regulation. (http://regulations.ufl.edu/regulations/uf-3-finance-administration).
  • Students are NOT volunteers for any activities for which they are receiving credit, fulfilling a degree requirement or part of their course syllabus.
  • Students who are not in a paid status are not covered by the University’s insurance and are strictly prohibited from operating a state vehicle, i.e., courtesy faculty and/or fellows (receiving a stipend).

 

Coverage Limits:

Our coverage limits are set at $200,000.00 for any one claim and $300,000.00 in the aggregate for any one occurrence.  As a State Institution, University of Florida cannot agree to add outside entities as Additional Insureds on our liability policies, or agree to indemnify them.
