Risk Management and Insurance


Risk Management proactively manages the University of Maine’s loss exposures by identifying the types of accidental losses faced by the University, analyzing the different types and sizes of these loss exposures and deciding how to handle and finance these losses. We use a combination of commercial insurance, self-insurance, risk avoidance, risk transfers and effective claim management. We recognize that the University by its very nature is a constantly changing, dynamic entity. Our aim is to protect the University and enable it to accomplish its educational, social and economic missions.

We actively manage the risk for the use of over 600 university vehicles, 75 watercraft, and over 500 owned buildings.  We even manage the risk for owned aircraft with an available leased hangar in Bangor, Maine.

The subject areas in which we commonly receive the most questions are listed below. Each subject contains a link to further information, including the necessary forms or guidelines that can be completed online or downloaded and printed.

We welcome inquiries from campuses, students, faculty, staff and visitors.
