The Risk Management and Insurance Program at La Salle University began in 1983. The mission of the program is to interest students in the field of risk management and insurance and to prepare students for a career in the field. We strive to accomplish our mission through an engaged learning experience in the classroom, participation in a variety of experiential education programs including extracurricular activities in the Gamma Iota Sigma International Collegiate Risk Management and Insurance Fraternity. We partner with local and national professional organizations related to risk and insurance to enhance the educational experience of our students through professional networking. One of the hallmarks of a Lasallian business education is the blending of classroom theory with current business practice. To this end, we recently hosted our 14th Annual Risk Manager in Residence Program in 2014.
