DCC will provide assistance in contacting University of Baltimore Police Department, who will then provide first aid as needed and will solicit transportation to a hospital if necessary.

    Participant Responsibility

    Participants should know and be able to meet the physical demands of any activity in which they are to engage. Each activity has a certain degree of risk, some more than others. Please note that participants of an event or program may be required to sign a liability waiver prior to participation.

    If medical assistance is necessary, the medical expenses beyond those covered by the participant’s insurance are the responsibility of the participant. It is also the responsibility of the participant to report any accident or incidents to DCC within three business days following a program or event.

    DCC strongly recommends all students not covered by health and accident insurance purchase student insurance.
