Higher Education

Helping Higher Education Clients

Campus disruptions, disasters and business interruptions can damage assets, finances, and reputation. Risk Strategies can help minimize damages and speed recovery, so you can focus on doing what you do best - educating. Over 250 higher education institutions trust us to tailor protection for their students, faculty, staff and property.

Precaution only goes so far. Visitors will trip and fall. Faculty and students traveling abroad will need emergency medical assistance. A tragic event may well unfold. Risk Strategies can tailor both the basics - Commercial General Liability, Automobile, Umbrella/Excess, Workers’ Compensation, Employer’s Liability – and the extras so you’re ready and covered.

From cutting-edge research to faculty/staff retirement plans and Title IX suits, you face unique professional and financial liability risks that Directors & Officers and Employment Practices Liability insurance don’t address. Risk Strategies knows how to cover these risks and goes to school on the fine print, to ensure your institution is properly protected.

Your employees and students should be focused on work and their studies, not insurance claims. Risk Strategies can ensure your faculty, staff and students have the coverage they need and the support they deserve with programs that get the right balance between benefits and affordability right.

Risk Strategies has the experts and resources to identify and address your myriad existing and potential risk exposures, offer data backed plans to address them and claims experts to help ensure your coverage pays off when needed.
