Risky Business Week

Risky Business Week 2014, November 3rd-7th

Risky Business Week


During Risky Business Week, the Office of Risk Management in Association with the University Risk Management & Insurance Association (URMIA) encourages all on campus to learn more about what risk management does for them – and what they can do to better manage risks every day.  Effective risk management in higher education helps protect people, operations, finances and resources, allowing campuses to meet their academic, social and economic goals.  Campus risk management is everyone’s job, all year long.
