The UWSP Risk Management department helps protect the University from various sources of loss or damage that could affect overall stability. This office works in conjunction with UWSA Office of Safety and Loss Prevention to administer risk management with the ultimate goal of preservation of assets and protection of personnel for the successful continuation of campus operations and promotion of a safe environment. 

Toward this end, we utilize a number of processes and tools:

  • Implement risk management policies and procedures and administer risk control techniques
  • Monitor current values for buildings, contents and moveable property
  • Determine coverages and provide recommendations
  • Respond to all property, liability and other casualty losses, initiating investigations and accomplishing the appropriate resolution of all claims
  • Develop programs for loss prevention based on available loss data
  • Coordinate loss control activities
  • Manage and procure special insurance programs (i.e. camps and clinic programs, special event insurance, etc.)
  • Review insurance and other language in vendor and research contracts to control transfer of risk review and approve Certificates of Insurance for vendors and facility users and maintain database of insurance information
  • Deliver risk education and training
  • Maintain associated risk files
