Liability Coverage

Eastern Illinois University is a member of SURMA, which is an intergovernmental self-insurance pool, that provides its members with a program to fund liability exposures.  The program covers civil liability for bodily injury, personal injury and property damage to tangible property resulting from occurrences in the conduct of university business, and damages arising out of certain professional services.

Employees, students in internships, and agents are "covered persons" under the self-insurance program and subject to its terms and conditions. The coverage is limited to occurrences of professional services which are within the scope of assigned duties and subject to the terms and conditions of the coverage document.
