Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
URMIA is pledged to the advancement of higher education risk management and the professional growth of our members. Our conduct is guided by the highest ethical standards. All interactions are characterized by trust, accessibility, diversity, innovation, and camaraderie.
Diversity in the profession facilitates:
Attracting skilled professionals
New perspectives/approaches in solving problems
Innovation in the development of products and services
Improved relationships with campus constituents and affiliates
To that end, at least one scholarship will be set aside to recognize those who have been traditionally underrepresented in the field of higher education risk management and who have demonstrated a dedication to personal growth and leadership through their commitments to education and/or work. See our 2021 Strategic Plan (page 6) for information about all our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) initiatives.
URMIA encourages applicants with minority backgrounds, unusual education, distinctive experiences, or unique histories to apply. This information allows us to identify a diverse pool of candidates and affirm we have a scholarship recipient who helps us achieve our goal. The individual responses will not be shared with the selection committee.
