Risk Management

The University has exposure to various risks related to employee safety and potential losses to University assets. The Risk Management Office within the Department of Environmental Health & Safety seeks to eliminate, prevent, or minimize those risks. Recognizing the need and responsibility to preserve the University's resources, the Risk Management Office develops policy and guidelines for administration of insurance programs and uses risk management strategies to reduce risks.
