Insurance is a tool used for managing risk. Risk may be transferred from one entity to another, such as an insurer, in exchange for payment. Self-insurance, whereby money is set aside to compensate for future losses, is another method for controlling risk.
Willamette University employees and departments may not directly purchase insurance. If you have an insurance need or a question about coverage, contact Risk Management at (503) 375-5443.
The university has various types of insurance or self-insurance to cover the different risks the institution faces. Please contact Risk Management if you need information about university insurance coverage.
