Higher Education Risk Management
Leaders in higher education institutions are dedicated to providing high-quality yet affordable education — while sustaining the financial health of their organizations. Often, they face severe budgetary pressures and increased threats to reputation that can affect their ability to attract students, faculty and critical funding.
Traditional risk areas such as natural catastrophes, employee liability, rising operational costs, and safety and security concerns are growing in complexity while new areas such as cyber liability, increasing numbers of minors on campus, and international travel risks add to the burden and cost of risk management. Institutions are doing more with less and developing innovative, cost-effective risk management solutions with the help of Aon’s Higher Education Practice.
