The University of Alaska is self-insured and has adopted the concept of Collaborative Risk Management. This means PWSC students, staff, faculty and administration will work together as well as with subject matter experts to evaluate the risk of activities they plan to engage in well before they take place. The goal is to provide a defensive shield for students and the University and sustain legal and regulatory compliance as well as prudent risk management and business practices.

Please visit the UAA Risk Services website for more information. As always, keep in close contact with the Office of Administrative Service and plan ahead to insure a successful experience for the students of PWSC.
