Risk Management Resources

Find liability, loss control and legal resources for managing risk.

The UC San Diego Risk Management Office develops and maintains programs that protect the University from unanticipated loss by providing systematic risk analysis, developing techniques to reduce potential exposure to loss, and procuring and administering insurance and self-insurance programs in accordance with the University's Risk Management Policy.  Specifically, Risk Management's primary goal is to minimize the adverse effects of accidental losses by either stopping losses from happening using risk control techniques, or paying for those losses that inevitably occur using risk financing techniques.  Risk Management provides a variety of insurance programs that protect the University's teaching, research, and public service activities from financial loss due to accidents and other unexpected events.  Please see below for a list of Risk Management resources available to the UC San Diego research community.
