Risk Management

We are experts in the unique risks of private higher education and understand the culture. Our risk management services help protect our Members’ students, employees and campuses.

A Dedicated Risk Management Director

A dedicated EIIA Risk Management Director (RMD) provides expert guidance to each and every Member institution. Our RMDs have an average of 25 years of experience in a broad array of fields, including higher education, insurance, legal, and safety protocols. Each with a unique expertise and a Member to RMD ratio that is atypical for the insurance industry.

Higher Education Specific

Our primary aim is to be an extension of your campus risk management programs. To that end, we’ve developed over 1,400 resources which can simply be downloaded or streamed and immediately implemented with the campus community.

Sharing Experiences

One of the true powers of a consortium is learning from the experience of others. We see what is happening on campuses across the country, interpret the details, develop risk mitigation tools, and then provide this information directly to you. The relationship with EIIA is a true collaboration.

Access to higher education specific resources

Good information is the key to recognizing and avoiding risks.

EIIA understands this and provides the resources to help your campus make informed decisions. Our extensive library of resources ranges from customizable policy templates to short informational videos.

Risk Management Advice

No one person is an expert on every topic. EIIA’s risk management directors are here to be an extension of your efforts, across campus. We perform thousands of risk management consultations annually. These “on-demand” consultations via email, phone, video-conference or face-to-face with all levels of the campus community, assist Members in tackling the day-to-day risk management challenges.
