Risk Management

The department of risk management works closely with University's constituents to protect University assets by identifying risks and, wherever necessary or feasible, mitigating these risks.

The responsibilities of this office include:

  • Partnering with the campus community to identify potential loss producing hazards and conditions;
  • Providing assistance in developing methods to manage hazards and conditions;
  • Managing the transfer of risk through contracts or insurance, when feasible or appropriate;
  • Chairing the Enterprise Risk Management Committee that identifies methods and processes to manage risk.

Risk management cannot be successful without the assistance from the entire campus. For more information or to discuss risk management within your department, please contact the Associate Vice President for Facilities and Risk Management, Helen Schneider, at ext. 2995 or
