Insurance products are provided through a combination of self insurance and purchased insurance while assuring acceptable risk transfer and retention for all routine and unique exposures. Other safety programs are directed through the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

The Office of Risk Management investigates and administers all property and casualty claims for the University and conducts program audits to determine vulnerabilities to distinct liability and property exposures. Support is also provided through loss prevention programs that serve to preserve the University's physical assets by utilizing a combination of facility inspections, fire protection engineering and immediate attention to reports of at-risk conditions.
