What is Risk Management Week?

Risk Management Week is scheduled annually to highlight the importance of risk management at institutions of higher education. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Promote Best Practices on Campus

URMIA helps risk managers spread the word about good risk management practices among their colleagues. We provide programming and marketing materials to make it easy for risk managers to host events on their local campuses during (or even after) Risk Management Week.

Reach Colleagues Beyond the Risk Management Department

Risk Management Week features a week-long webinar series, but is also about creating a forum for non-risk managers to learn about the importance of local, state, and federal regulations; common risks on college and university campuses; and what non-risk managers can do to advance effective risk practices on their campuses.
