The Office of Risk Management is committed to protecting the University's human, physical and financial assets through:

  • Prevention of adverse incidents through training, education, and inspection
  • Procurement of insurance products
  • Fair and responsible claims administration
  • Advising of senior management on how to best provide future protection against key risks given the University's ambitious strategic plans

We oversee a variety of University insurance programs, including automobile, general and professional liability, property, fine arts, workers' compensation, student hospitalization, visiting scholars' health, short and long term employee disability, and special events. We also focus on employee safety and loss prevention.

Staffing and daily administration of the University's separately incorporated insurance entity, Rubicon Insurance Company, is provided by the Office of Risk Management.
