Request a Release / Acknowledgement of Risk Form
This web form is used by EWU departments and programs to request a release form and/or an acknowledgement of risk form be developed for a specific event, activity or program.
These forms are typically developed for events or activities that pose additional risks to participants that are outside of normal classroom or campus activities.
Examples include extracurricular activities such as ziplines, inflatables, trips off campus, etc. and academic activities such as field trips.
What is a Release / Acknowledgement of Risk?
An acknowledgement of risk (AOR) is a tool for informing participants about potential risks that come with participation in an activity, event, or program, and documenting their decision to assume those risks. A release form is a legally binding contract, in which the participant in an activity agrees to not hold the university responsible or "liable" for any injuries that the participant might receive as a result of participating in the university's programs.
