General Counsel


The DGC seeks to minimize the University’s human, financial, and legal exposures to loss. The DGC works to accomplish this by assisting the University’s Risk Manager with the following:

  • Identifying and evaluating risks;
  • Establishing policies, procedures and programs to ensure loss control;
  • Providing “best practices” in areas of risk;
  • Training and educating University departments with respect to insurance and appropriate claims reporting requirements;
  • Providing advice regarding ways to reduce risk with programming including off-campus activities; and
  • Reviewing contracts to ensure that appropriate protective clauses are included, and that the contracts meet legal sufficiency.
