The Office of Risk Management (ORM) is responsible for identifying and analyzing potential areas of risk to the University, making recommendations as to those risks which are to be insured, and those that are to be self-insured or assumed, as well as recommending the types and amounts of coverage purchased to protect the University's assets. The Office of Risk Management has been delegated the overall responsibility for the procurement and administration of all property and casualty coverages for the University. Additionally, the ORM coordinates policy administration and will respond to all questions related to insurance matters and coverage needs.
Any incident, which may result in a property or liability claim, should be immediately reported to the Office of Risk Management. Claims involving a crime, such as theft of University property, should first be reported to Security for an official report and investigation. The Office of Risk Management will investigate reported incidents and complete and submit all claims to the appropriate insurance carriers. All checks reimbursing the University for losses for which a claim has been filed, are channeled through this office in order to insure a proper audit trail, and that funds due the University are collected and deposited appropriately.
If you have questions about the University's insurance programs and claims management process, contact the ORM at 812-461-5366.
