Risk Management


The Risk Management Department of the San Jose Evergreen Community College District is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for district employees, students, and visitors, as well as protecting and preserving district property and assets. Our department is involved in a wide range of projects across the district, including district-based services such as Facilities Management, Campus Police, and Purchasing, as well as campus-based activities involving Business Services, Health Services, Athletics, and more.

Our responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
  • Administering and managing the district's liability, property, and other insurance coverages
  • Serving as the district's liaison to the self-insurance program
  • Managing claims brought against the district
  • Facilitating safety and emergency preparedness training
  • Identifying and assisting with local, state, and federal compliance matters
  • Evaluating and advising on best practices to reduce risk to the district
  • Participating in district and campus safety committees
  • Reviewing and assisting with contract language with vendors.
To ensure the San Jose Evergreen Community College District is providing a safe environment for all, it is important to use the forms, documents, and information provided in this section. District contract templates and requirements can be found on the Purchasing Toolbox.

As Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Risk is like fire: If controlled it will help you; if uncontrolled it will rise up and destroy you." 

We strive to keep risk under control and to minimize potential harm to the district, its employees, students and visitors.
