URMIA's Strategic Goal 4
Connect our Actions to the Long-standing Values of our Members that Promote Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) within our Community and the Profession of Higher Education Risk Management
At URMIA, we believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are critical to evolve our organization and profession. We are committed to taking intentional and affirmative steps as we progress into the future. See our active Strategic Plan for more details.
In 2022, a task force of member volunteers developed three Be the Change scholarship programs to serve this strategic goal. The scholarship described here was created to fund a risk management internship and to promote the profession among those underrepresented in the field, such as students of color.
