About Us

Our Mission

The Office of Risk and Insurance Management will seek to:

  • Provide advice, assistance, and direction in the university's inescapable obligation to furnish facilities and an environment that will provide reasonable protection from injury and property damage for employees, students and the public and to assure that these actions assist the University in being a good steward of funds in its possession and in preserving its assets.
  • Provide support services only in those areas where value is added by having a System presence and where consistency among campuses is necessary.
  • Develop the respect of campus administrators and staff so that they gladly seek the advice and assistance of RIM staff.
