What is Risk Management?
Risk Management at St. Edward's University is a function of the Office of Financial Affairs. The primary objective of the Risk Management Office is to protect all of the university's human, physical, and financial resources from loss. We utilize various types of insurance, legal analysis, and risk reduction methods.
The Risk Management Office exists to centralize efforts to control the university's losses from unforeseen events. Largely, the Risk Management Office's role is advisory and consultative. Every employee and student of St. Edward's manages risks every day, and we all have a responsibility for risk management within our various roles. It is Risk Management's role to help you identify, analyze, and manage the risks you face.
The St. Edward's University Risk Management Office seeks to actively protect the tangible and intangible assets of the University.
Our main objective is to pursue open communication, cooperation, collaboration and proactive management with administrators, trustees, officers, faculty, staff, students and the public, so that the entire St. Edward's community may work together to reduce the risks for the university.
Our primary goal is to reduce the university's cost of risk through educated and thoughtful decision making processes, immediate response to potential losses, appropriate transfer of risk and thorough mitigation of losses.
