Paperwork needed for research and outreach activities such as field trips


UCOP and UC Merced continuously update their liability and media release forms. We no longer provide downloadable links to the forms described below for this reason. Direct questions to mgilmore2@ (at) ucmerced (dot) edu.
These forms should be submitted to the SSCZO Outreach Manager or the SNRI main office at UC Merced.

For participating minors under 18, these forms must be signed by a parent or guardian.


Release of Liability

Any non-UC employee is required to sign a waiver of release of liability when participating in activities at the SSCZO. Contact UC Merced Risk Services to receive the most recent version and to determine if you need voluntary or required forms for your activity.

Media Release

A media release is required if you plan to take photos or videos of people in which they will be identifiable. Without this form, photos and videos with identifiable persons are legally unusable on web sites, in print media, or in presentations. Contact UC Merced Public Relations to receive the most recent version of this form.
