AGREEMENT, WAIVER, AND RELEASE
Students must read and complete this Waiver and Release prior to participating in any travel associated
with Muskingum University’s International Programs. I, the undersigned, agree to the following:
(1) I shall indemnify Muskingum University (“University”) and hold harmless its agents and its
employees from all liability, losses, costs, claims, damages, and expenses, including attorney’s fees,
arising or claimed to have arisen out of personal injuries or death, or property damage or loss,
sustained by me as a result of participating in this academic, athletic, or University-supported
activity, however caused, including, without limitation claimed sole, joint, or concurrent negligence,
negligence per se, statutory fault, or strict liability on the part of University employees, other
participants, or third parties. In addition, I shall indemnify the University, its agents and employees
from all liability, losses, costs, claims, damages, and expenses, including attorney’s fees, relating to
claims or injury arising from my own negligence or intentional acts during my participation in this
International Program (including travel to and from any activity sites) and I hereby RELEASE and
forever DISCHARGE the University and its agents and employees from all such liability, loss, costs,
claims, damages, or expenses.
(2) I understand that the employee(s) for the activity are acting in their respective capacities as agents
of the University, not individually, and hereby waive any and all claims I may have or purport to
have against the University or against employee(s) individually including but not limited to any
losses occasioned by any changes in travel plans, weather, strikes, acts of God, force majeure, war,
terrorism, quarantine, criminal activity, or for the failure of any of the companies providing
transportation, lodging, meals, tour services, or other goods or services, as applies to the nature of
this activity, to provide such services on a timely basis or for the failure to provide them at all.
(3) I understand that most, if not all, of the premises, facilities, and/or equipment used as part of the
program(s) are not owned, maintained, or controlled by the University, but rather by the premises
owners. There may be other risks not known to the University and not reasonably foreseeable at
this time. I waive any and all claims I may have or purport to have against the University including,
but not limited to the following: (a) the use and condition of various modes of transportation,
premises, facilities, and equipment; or (b) the inadequacy or unavailability of medical facilities,
treatment, and/or professionals.
(4) Program Modifications/Cancellations.
(A) The University has the right to make cancellations, changes, or substitutions in the course,
agenda, program, assigned employee(s), travel arrangements, or arrangements for other
services, in the event of causes beyond its reasonable control, significantly changed
conditions, or changes in the interests of the group. Such causes may include, but are not
limited to, travel alerts or warnings issued by the U.S. Department of State, suspicion of
terrorist activities, or general health or safety concerns.
