Our mission is to, in a timely and professional manner, minimize the adverse effects of loss due to accidents or unexpected events that jeopardize the wellbeing of the university community. This is accomplished by being a resource to the University in the areas of general risk management, claims management, and risk transference through obtaining adequate coverage, as well as advising and reviewing compliance to institutional, local, state, and federal policies. 

If you are a supervisor or employee wishing to report an injury that occurred in the course and scope of employment you may complete the First Report of Injury form. 

If you are an employee, student, or third party wishing to make a claim for damage to your property or persons you may fill out the Claims form.
