URMIA's 50th Anniversary Celebration



One of our greatest member benefits is the chance to connect with peers through URMIA's many networking opportunities, both online and in person.




"Risk managers" weren't even a thing back when URMIA began. Our members forged a path and built the profession of risk management in higher education.




Continuous professional development is the key to success in risk management. Members get a leg up with educational opportunities available through URMIA.

Celebrating 50 Years of Advancing Risk Management

In September 2019, URMIA will celebrate a remarkable milestone: its 50th Annual Conference. From our beginning, concepts of community, innovation, and education have been the driving forces behind URMIA and our members.

Our year-long celebration, "Community, Innovation, Education: Celebrating 50 Years of Advancing Risk Management," honors our past, our members, and the impact URMIA has made on the profession and profile of risk management in higher education.
