Who we are

Risk Management Services is a member of the University's Finance and Administration portfolio.

Through our six operational units we help the University community achieve its objectives by providing the programs, support, expertise and assistance to understand and, through a balanced approach, manage risk. 

Our vision is to make risk management an integral part of all decision making, at all levels, across the University.

All the units within Risk Management Services are committed to the University's vision of building "one of the world's great universities for the public good."

Philip Stack is the Associate Vice-President of Risk Management Services.
