  • Provide direct input into identifying risk management student educational needs and helping to design strategies to meet the needs
  • Receive periodic summary updates on program developments and accomplishments
  • Assist in educational experiences of the students, including:
    • Conducting invited guest lectures

    • Networking with the students and faculty
