Insurance Required of MIT

MIT is often asked by outside parties to confirm various types and levels of insurance in connection with business agreements.  (An example of this is when an MIT organization is hosting an off-site event and the outside hosting venue/outside party requests proof of Insurance.)

MIT can meet its’ contractual obligation and evidence proof of insurance by the issuance of a Certificate of Insurance.
