Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) manages Auburn University’s property and casualty insurance needs and requirements. This includes insurance pricing and procurement; structuring of self-insured retention and excess insurance layers; plus claim adjudication. Additionally, RMI works closely with each university entity in the identification and mitigation of risks in general, including risks such as personal injury, crime and property loss. Other RMI responsibilities include administration of the University’s On-The-Job Injury Program (OJI); oversight of Threat Assessment issues; and collaboration with the Office of International Education on international risks to overseas safety for all AU travelers.
The Fire Safety Program is responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of those attending, working at or visiting Auburn University from the risk of fire. This extends to safe-guarding University property and preventing disruption to core University operations caused by fire. Across the University, the Fire Safety staff provides a broad spectrum of fire safety training, education and services, while ensuring compliance with mandated safety codes. Our trained staff works collaboratively with AU administration, university departments and key outside agencies such as the Auburn City Fire Department and the Alabama State Fire Marshall’s Office to accomplish these tasks.
