Overseeing Insurance Programs

Risk Management Services serves the University’s full spectrum of risk management needs, including individualized risk assessments, risk reporting tools to measure performance, the procurement of proper insurance coverages, insurance claim adjustments and contract review to address contractual liabilities.

Risk Management Services plays a key role in the management of the University’s entire risk portfolio. We recognize that many other campus units share in this responsibility, and we partner with those units to achieve a coordinated, cohesive and enterprise-wide approach to managing all University risks. By providing this team-oriented approach, our campus customers are assured that they have the full force of the University’s risk management resources behind them.
