About Insurance & Risk Management
By identifying potential events and providing tools to manage outcomes, Insurance & Risk Management (IRM) enables UCLA departments to manage risk associated with their objectives. By creating effective risk management strategies at the operational level to reduce our largest cost drivers, we can reduce our loss exposure and protect the resources which enable the mission of research, teaching and public service to continue.
