Protecting our resources to provide the PSU community with;
excellent academic programs
and creative scholarship
The key word in this mission statement is "Protecting." Successfully protecting our resources involves managing risk. This means that we work with the PSU community to identify potential exposures and develop the most effective solutions to protect our resources so that OSU can accomplish its overall mission…providing excellent programs, experiences, and scholarships.
As a service department within the Business Affairs Office (FADM), we provide risk management consultation and resources to the University community. Our goal is to minimize the risk of loss to the University by:
- Identifying sources of loss
- Assessing the impact of losses
- Selecting or recommending risk management solutions
- Implementing risk management strategies
- Monitoring risk management solutions for effectiveness
Our role is to collaborate with faculty, staff, and students to help them meet their goals while still protecting the University. Working together we can accomplish both.
In the event of a personnel injury or property loss, Risk Management responds with the direction and assistance to minimize the loss, thoroughly identify the damages, mitigate interruptions from damages, and prepare a detailed claim to recover our losses and restore operations as soon as possible. These functions are performed, in large part, through Risk Management’s coordination with PSU’s Facilities and Planning Department.
