Compliance Community

This community is for URMIA institutional members who have responsibility for compliance risk, play a role in overall compliance efforts on campus, or want to learn more about compliance risk. The group of more than 200 compliance professionals take part in monthly virtual education sessions and discussions to keep up with the latest in compliance issues on campus.

Higher Ed ERM Roundtable

Enterprise risk management (ERM) is growing on campus and URMIA developed its Higher Ed ERM Roundtable community to bring together those URMIA institutional members who are directly or indirectly responsible for ERM or wish to learn more about ERM. Roundtable members meet regularly online discussing and sharing best practices, experiences, education, and challenges.

Professionals of Color Community

The Professionals of Color Community welcomes people of color, those who identify as a non-majority ethnicity, and people who are biracial to exchange thoughts on support and empowerment in the higher education risk management community. Participating in the Professionals of Color Community is free and open to all URMIA members belonging to these diverse populations.

Solo Risk Professionals Community

You are not alone as a higher education risk manager. URMIA has established the Solo Risk Professionals Community where institutional risk professionals can exchange ideas and benefit from the experience, knowledge, and wisdom of peers who are also the only risk manager at their institution or are responsible for risk management as just one of their primary duties on campus. Belonging to the Solo Risk Professionals Community is free and open to all URMIA members who are alone in overseeing their institution’s risk management responsibilities.
