Meet Risk Management

The University is dedicated to providing an environment that helps to ensure internal and external risks are managed. In each newsletter we will highlight a department that is key to this effort.


The Risk Management Office is responsible for administering the self-insurance and commercial insurance programs for the University. Risk Management oversees the investigation of all insurance claims and suits.  Further, this group monitors for compliance with risk management policies and procedures University wide.

Risk Management also acts as advisors and as a resource for the University, its different schools and affiliates in situations relating to exposure, risk and insurance.
