In compliance and accordance with state mandates, it is the college’s policy to reduce risk to the greatest extent possible while carrying out the mission.
Risk Management is a function of the Finance and Administration division of the college. The Vice President has delegated responsibility for oversight of risk management to the Compliance Officer.
Analysis of hazards, preventing and reducing risk, and transferring risk (through the purchase of commercial insurance via the Risk Management section of the Department of Enterprise Services) are functions of risk management.
The college is also self-insured through the state’s Self Insurance Liability Program. All issues of a liability nature shall be reported to the Compliance Officer according to policies outlined in Chapter 6.
