Risk management

What is Risk Management?

In accordance with Texas Education Code, Section 51.9361, all registered student organizations are required to attend training sessions on a set of risk management topics as it relates to individuals, organization functions, and/or activities. Risk Management Training is held in order to provide HPU registered student organizations with the most up to date information on student organization risk management and responsible activity planning. It is Student Activities goal to assist student organizations in making positive choices. All student organizations should be concerned with risk management. No matter how big an event or how small an activity, risk will be present at some level. Learning to manage risk will reduce individual liability and ensure a fun, safe environment for participants.

What is Risk Management?

HPU requires that all organization Presidents, new Advisors, and New Member Educators attend Risk Management Training.  After the organization leaders have attended, it is their responsibility to present that information to the rest of the organization. Once the information is presented, please submit the Risk Management Training Confirmation Form indicating that the report was made to the organization’s membership.
