It is the mission of the Office of Risk Management (ORM) to provide high quality risk management services, resources, and leadership, which create value and support The University of Texas System’s (UT System) mission of excellence in education, research, healthcare, and public service.

The framework of the UT System risk management program consists of key elements including assessment, control, finance, communication, and monitoring. It is governed by executive leadership and direction from the Risk Management Executive Committee. A broad range of risks are managed by  professionals at UT System Administration, the fourteen institutions and through Systemwide committees including the Risk Management Advisory Committee, the Workers’ Compensation Insurance (WCI) Committee, the Environmental Health and Safety Advisory Committee (EHSAC), and the Emergency Management Committee.
