With more than 20 million students attending nearly 5,000 colleges and universities, educators face more risks now than ever before – Ranging from sexual harassment complaints and accusations to emergency events.
Along with property, auto and liability issues, educational institutions must navigate emerging risks like cybercrime and international travel. It’s important to keep students safe while providing a rewarding learning experience and managing your institution’s reputation to help your school succeed.
Higher education institutions focus on cutting-edge research, international studies, new technologies, accomplished faculty, and high-achieving students. Developing a tailored insurance policy for the numerous hazards for higher education institutions is pivotal. For example, what happens when a fire in the Student Center destroys computer equipment and furniture? Or a maintenance worker in injured when falling from a ladder while replacing light fixtures? There are a variety of exposures and risks your institution is susceptible to.
