The Risk Management Office is open and available to handle your needs virtually as we are working from home. Please continue to email or phone us directly for any questions or concerns you may have.
The Office of Insurance and Risk Management is dedicated to serving our campus community. Our role is to mitigate risks and reduce their associated costs that may have a negative impact on the mission of the University. We support CSUN’s mission through the use of accepted risk management techniques and practices; preserving valuable resources and reducing funding losses due to foreseeable risk. Through daily interaction with faculty, staff, students, Colleges and Departments, and the community, the Insurance and Risk Management Office provides support and guidance.
Our experienced staff can help you identify and manage financial and safety risks that may result in costly litigation, contract disputes, and other claims against the university or departments.
