- The University does not carry Professional Liability Insurance for professional activities that are not part of University programs (e.g., personal consulting; personal professional engineer opinions/recommendations, etc., of faculty and staff members). Generally, faculty and staff can obtain appropriate insurance coverage at a minimal cost from a professional society to which they belong.
- Independent contractors and vendors are required to have their own insurance coverage. Individuals entering into contracts with external organizations/institutions should verify that the contractor assumes adequate responsibility for liability losses and should review the contracts with their department heads/center directors. Contracts presented to you by outside contractors and vendors must be reviewed by Lehigh’s General Counsel’s Office, Purchasing, Office of Research or Risk Management.
