Risk Management Committee

As an important element of its stewardship responsibility, Schreiner University strives for a risk management process that encompasses more than just insurance, work safety and health or legal liability management. It also includes continuously evaluating and minimizing inherent, enduring risks to faculty, staff, students, community members, and others involved in the campus experience. Risk management is an ongoing process that requires responsiveness to evolving governmental and workplace laws and regulations. By ensuring that all constituents are adequately informed, involved, and oriented, the risk management process will strengthen community-campus partnerships by furthering mutual trust and understanding.
