Ithaca College protects its assets through a Property Insurance Plan.  This involves the College purchasing insurance to protect against risks, such as fire, weather damage, or theft, and also self insures for a broad scope of property losses, such as computers, equipment, and building contents, as well as for third-party liability losses.  Insurance deductibles may also apply.  All damage to or loss of College-owned property is to be reported to Risk Management immediately to determine if the loss is insured, self-insured, or qualifies for a third-party claim. 

Personal property is not considered College-owned property. Therefore, it is not covered by the College's Property Insurance Plan.

Computer Theft or Damage

The College maintains a self-insurance program to cover the theft of College-owned computer equipment.  In each instance of theft or damage, the department must report the details of the occurrence immediately to the Office of Public Safety, Risk Management, and Information Technology.  Details must include the date; time and location of loss; and equipment type and identification. Risk Management will not be able to coordinate and process reimbursement, if any, until ample time is allowed to review the case and Public Safety report.  Please review the policy and procedures.
