Risk & Insurance

The Office of Risk Management supports the mitigation of the University's life safety, reputation, financial, operational, and asset risks utilizing risk transfer, risk retention, and risk mitigation in collaboration with every University department.

Key components of the Risk Management function of the ORM include managing the University's insurance portfolio and associated claims, facilitating risk assessments, and helping the university to mitigate risks through training and education.

ORM endeavors to add value by creating a culture of risk awareness, safety, and risk mitigation.
