The Office of Risk Management is responsible for coordinating the risk management activities of the University
in the areas of property insurance, general and automobile liability insurance, workers' compensation and medical,

exposure to risk and implements measures to reduce the risk of loss University-wide.
Included in these activities are the purchase of property and casualty insurance coverages to protect the corporation
and its subsidiary or controlled entities against risk of financial loss, managing related services with insurance brokers,
carriers and claims service providers, and educating operating units of the University with respect to the
scope of the University's property/casualty insurance coverage and appropriate claims reporting guidelines.
