Placement Agreements

Student Placement agreements between the University and a host entity shall be reviewed by and can only be signed by University authorized contracting officers in Procurement and Contract Services. These agreements typically provide for students to be placed with other agencies or institutions for course-required work experience. Student Placement agreements must be in writing and shall specify minimum insurance requirements applicable to the contracting parties and appropriate hold harmless provisions based upon the needs of the contracting parties. The following hold harmless provision may be used as a minimum:

• Hold Harmless Provision: [insert entity] shall be responsible for damages caused by the negligence of its officers, employees and agents. Trustees shall be responsible for damages caused by the negligence of its officers, employees and agents. The intent of this paragraph is to impose responsibility on each party for the negligence of its officers, employees and agents.
