The mission of the Office of Risk Management at Brandeis is to prevent loss of life and personal injury, protect and secure University assets, and to keep to a prudent minimum the cost of managing risk by analyzing the different types and sizes of loss exposures, deciding how to handle and finance these exposures through a combination of insurance, self-insured retentions, risk avoidance, risk transfers and effective claims management of the losses that do occur.

We recognize that the university, by its very nature, is a constantly changing, dynamic entity. Our aim is to protect the university, not by avoiding the various actions that make the university function as a university, but rather by bringing about a realization that there can be rational planning incorporated within every function to minimize the loss exposures.
