Enterprise Risk Management coordinates insurance coverage for the college, provides risk mitigation and reduction strategies, and seeks to make the campus environment safer for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
- Dickinson-related and sponsored international travel: All faculty, staff, and student groups traveling internationally in Dickinson-related and sponsored non-credit bearing programs that are not sponsored by the Center for Global Study and Engagement should request international travel insurance with global medical policy by submitting this form to the office of Compliance & Enterprise Risk Management. Please submit your request at least three weeks in advance of your scheduled travel. All international travel requests to a location with an active Department of State Travel Warning must be reviewed by the International Travel and Risk Assessment Committee before submitting this form. Access the form here.
- Travel of an entirely personal nature, such as vacation: You are, of course, under no obligation to purchase global medical insurance if you are conducting personal travel. However, from time to time, members of the community look for recommendations on global medical insurance coverage. If you are interested in obtaining global medical insurance coverage, the college’s insurance broker has provided us with the following option through a company called RoamRight.

Voluntary Personal Property & Liability Insurance for Students, Faculty, and Staff
Students, faculty, and staff are not covered by Dickinson for personal liability, including the loss or theft of personal property when traveling abroad. It is the responsibility of each program participant to purchase liability insurance, if needed. Check first to see whether your homeowner or renter’s insurance will cover personal liability while overseas. If you would like to voluntarily purchase personal property and liability insurance, you may wish to contact the college's insurance broker, RCM&D, to learn more about coverage that is available for you.
Certificate of Insurance
A certificate of insurance demonstrates evidence of an insurance policy. This document provides no coverage to the certificate holder and rarely guarantees that the certificate holder will be notified if there is a policy cancellation. Dickinson College's insurance broker will issue a certificate of insurance upon the request to the Office of Compliance & Enterprise Risk Management. Please be sure to upload a copy of the contract requirements or original request from the requesting party when you submit the Certificate of Insurance Request Form.
