Risk Management and Insurance. Guidelines for Higher Education.
Adams, John F.
Insurance companies, following the campus unrest of the late 1960's and early 1970's, became rather wary of insuring college and university campuses because of the great amount of risk involved. As a study committee found, however, the risk of insuring educational facilities had been overestimated due to widespread newspaper and television coverage of isolated incidents that were generalized to the entire higher education community. This document is meant to be a guide to college and university administrators who are unaware of the means and approaches to minimizing risks in order to obtain lower insurance premiums. Chapters are included in the guidebook on: (1) Risks Peculiar to Higher Education; (2) Discovering and Evaluating Risks and Exposures; (3) Loss Prevention and Loss Limitation in Higher Education; (4) the Nature of Insurance; (5) Property Insurance; (6) Casualty and Liability Insurance Coverages; (7) Insured Fringe Benefits; (8) The Insurance Market; and (9) Risk Management, Institutional Administration, and Policymaking.
