+-Risky Business Week

Risky Business: A Week Focusing on Risk Management's Contributions to Higher Education is November 5-9, 2012. Risky Business week is a new campaign of the University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) to raise awareness of the institutional value of today's higher education risk managers, enabling our institution to meet its mission today and well into the future.
Today's higher education risk managers operate on campus in a wide variety of capacities:

  • Risk managers provide support and consultation to staff and faculty on a wide range of matters that impact the financial health and well-being of the university community.
  • We bring risk management expertise to students, faculty, and staff as they plan campus activities and events.
  • We view risk holistically, proactively, and responsively when seeking ways to protect our students, guests, and employees; our institution’s reputation; and our financial resources.
  • We are committed to campus safety.
  • We are strategic and practical, and we like to look at the “big picture.”

At Chapman University the Risk Management Office works to identify and prevent risks, including a wide array of issues ranging from Student Life to Faculty Field Trips to Foreign Travel to the purchase of insurance to limit the financial liabilities of the University.
