Risk Management

Risk Management is responsible for the management of risks of accidental loss, and the financing of such losses. Losses may arise from fire and water damage, liability claims and litigation, employment-related injuries, theft, and other causes. Risk Management's responsibilities also include performing risk assessments and analysis, purchasing insurance, establishing levels of self-insurance and limits of commercial insurance, adjusting and investigating claims, selecting insurance companies, brokers and third-party claim administrators, and working with University administrators to develop policies and procedures to prevent or minimize losses.
