Systemwide Risk Management

Risk Management

Each of the California State University's 23 campuses is responsible for administering their risk management program in a manner that will minimize risk to students, employees, and visitors and protect the property of the campus. Each president has designated a risk manager to assist the campus administrators in maintaining the campus risk management policies and practices.

In 1997, the California State University Risk Management Authority (CSURMA), a Joint Powers Authority, was created to establish a risk pool program for all CSU campuses and CSU auxiliary organizations.
