Student Membership

Your URMIA Opportunities

A free student membership is available for those who are enrolled full-time at an institution of higher education and are interested in learning more about the profession of higher education risk management.

Student membership provides opportunities to learn about the various areas of risk on college and university campuses that risk managers and their colleagues face. Students can also connect with other students studying or interested in risk management in addition to professionals in the field.

What Is in It for You

Student members are entitled to URMIA member benefits and can use the membership to:

  • Learn about the profession of higher education risk management from those working in the field

  • Meet and talk to higher ed risk management professionals about the challenges and solutions to risks on today’s campuses

  • Network with other students interested in higher ed risk management and insurance

  • Access resources related to risk management professional development

Memberships are free for full-time students.


Being involved in URMIA and having a student membership has given me access to a host of valuable resources.

I have access to the full library of higher education risk management resources curated by the URMIA team which has been helpful with school assignments and projects.

In addition, I have been able to build a network with some amazing risk management professionals both virtually and in person at the 2022 URMIA conference.
