Who We Are

Expertise in Higher Education Risk Management

Our proactive approach and commitment to risk management education ensures our Members can mitigate risk, prevent costly claims, help you understand the marketplace, and ensure you are fully connected to our services.


Understanding Private Higher Education

Each year, private higher education is threatened in new and unexpected ways. Cyber threats. Active shooters. Sexual misconduct. Student mental health. Shifting generational attitudes. Regulatory upheaval. Sure, you have insurance. But even if you can anticipate the next threat, being insured isn’t the same as being prepared.

Managing today’s risk demands a rare combination – both exposure to the changing world of private higher education, and the complexities of insurance industry expertise. EIIA brings these two together in a way truly unique to the market.

What makes us different? Our members integrate their real-time experiences, collective wisdom, and formidable buying power with EIIA’s insurance and risk management expertise. The result is a dynamic partnership, generating innovative, cost-effective solutions that protect against the threats of both today and tomorrow.

Change is inevitable. But you don’t have to face it alone. Partnering. Preparing. Protecting. That’s our formula. That’s the value of EIIA.

Partnering. Preparing. Protecting.
