New Book: Serving Safely: A Risk Management Resource for College Service Programs
Posted by on September 22, 2008
Serving Safely: A Risk Management Resource for College Service Programs provides service administrators an informational reference point for considering risk management and liability issues in campus service programs.
Special attention has been given to developing a common point of understanding between risk managers, campus counsel, and service providers (faculty, service administrators, students, and community partners), so that effective service policies and procedures that reduce risk, while not compromising program objectives, may be developed and embraced.
Serving Safely: A Risk Management Resource for College Service Programs includes sections on: defining terms to clarify such differences as that between a student and a student involved in a service program; ideas for designing a safe service program including information about different kinds of insurance; sample forms and guiding questions to use in assessing and managing risk; a comprehensive list and description of internet resources.
Written by Sharon A. Joyce, Ph.D. and Elaine K. Ikeda, Ph.D. with a preface by Richard E. Cone, Ed.D.
