Office of Risk Management and Insurance Research

Connecting the University of Illinois with the insurance industry to build a safer, more resilient world


The Office of Risk Management and Insurance Research (ORMIR) was established to design research on critical issues facing the industry and engage students seeking careers in risk management and insurance. Because insurance crosses many disciplines, ORMIR connects students across campus and partners with professionals to engage in students’ career exploration. Students are reminded that insurance is a people business that protects families and finances.

Students from across the University of Illinois campus can join the AXIS Risk Management Academy, where they explore professional development resources and experiences to enhance their interest in risk management.
