We continuously focus on Ithaca College's strategic goals, mission, opportunities, and innovation.  We strive to minimize the risk of financial, physical, and reputational loss through the proper identification and analysis of risk, implementation of techniques such as loss prevention, risk transfer, claim management, and insurance.  We also serve to educate the campus community about the role and benefits of risk management in today’s academic and business environment.

General Consulting

We assist faculty, staff, and student leaders with assessing risks and liability exposures associated with College activities.  This allows us to make specific recommendations that can mitigate and minimize liability exposures while maintaining the integrity of College programs and functions.  We are best able to assist you if you provide us with written details of the proposed activity as far in advance as possible.  Please remember that we are working with multiple departments simultaneously and that the volume of requests we receive may make it difficult for us to respond in a timely manner if you submitted your request at the last minute.

Motor Vehicle Record Checks

We coordinate motor vehicle record checks with the College's insurance company for faculty, staff, and students 21 years of age and older.  This is a 14-business day process, so please be sure to submit all information well in advance of any planned travel.  Please fill out and submit the Driver Information Form to initiate this process.
