Strategies for Addressing Increasing Mental Health Concerns and Risk of Suicide On Campus
(Core Competency #1: Risk Management Technical Skills) Data from the Healthy Minds Study and the American College Health Association’s National College Health Assessment indicate that approximately 9% of college students have seriously considered suicide, 6% have made a suicide plan and 2% have actually made an attempt. In addition, the number of students on our campuses with depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions continues to rise. Colleges must find better ways to manage these increasingly risky populations. Using the example of one institution’s experiences, this session examines the various strategies implemented to address the growing population of students coming to campus with mental health concerns, including thoughts of suicide. The session will highlight education efforts, interventions, care and threat assessment teams, and how working with the JED Foundation supported these efforts.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Understand the increased mental health concerns and risk of suicidality among college students
+Learn how one campus implemented various programs to increase awareness among and reporting on students of concern by students, faculty and staff
+Learn how the JED Foundation can help to create campus-wide prevention and intervention strategies and advise on best-practice mental health policies, programs, and services

Moving from “Check the Box” Compliance to a Comprehensive Compliance Culture
(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) With increased regulatory compliance obligations, institutions find it easy and efficient to rely on out-of-the-box training programs that deliver consistent online training courses on a range of topics. But is this effective? Employees who complete the same required training course and sign the same policy attestation year after year often click through quiz answers only searching for the right one to get the task done. This process does not ensure that the trainings are effective, and compliance efforts may be indirectly harmed through these types of redundant and ineffective trainings. To supplement these trainings in a more effective and employee-centered manner, institutions can support employees in fully understanding their specific compliance requirements through customized and in-person trainings; one-on-one engagement; creation and utilization of a "Tone at the Top" supported by a "Tone at the Middle"; and use of multiple types of contact, including in-person, online, passive, group, video, and written materials. Most importantly, institutional leaders should enjoy the freedom to discuss the values unique to their campus and take advantage of their campus culture to actively enhance employee engagement in a comprehensive regulatory compliance program.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Understand the business, legal, and culture-based arguments that support a comprehensive compliance and ethics program
+Define specific tools for moving beyond minimum ethics and compliance to a more robust program with effective employee engagement and training, plus top-down support for compliance-based initiatives
+Identify ways to empower all employees across campus to engage in voluntary compliance through ownership and accountability for compliance initiatives

Strategies for Managing Sexual Harassment Claims – Past and Present – in the #MeToo Era
(Core Competency #2: Strategic Management) Over the last year and a half, the #MeToo movement has shed increasing light on the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment on campus, as well as how claims are managed – or mismanaged – when an incident is reported. Is your institution prepared? Do you have policies in place to act quickly and responsibly when a member of your community comes forward? This session will explore best practices for receiving, investigating and responding to past and present claims, as well as how the university’s legal, insurance, and communications teams can work effectively and efficiently to minimize exposure and manage risk.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Gain a greater awareness of the internal and external challenges associated with managing sexual harassment claims on campus
+Review policies necessary for receiving, investigating, and responding to allegations of sexual harassment
+Understand how the institution can work with its legal, insurance, and communications teams to minimize exposure and manage risk

Never Been Without a Phone: Millennials, Distractions, and Challenges to Safety on Campus
(Core Competency #2: Strategic Management) Three seconds is how long it typically takes to drive across a football field, send a text message, or change the channel on the radio. It’s also the amount of time many drivers (or walkers) are engaged in distracted activities that can impact their safety. We’ve all seen students crossing the street against the light while their faces are buried in their cell phones. We’ve all seen them talking on their phones while carding into a building without noticing the person behind them piggybacking through the door. Building a safety culture on campus with a generation that has never known life without a smart phone or social media is hard. Using a PBS documentary 3 Seconds Behind the Wheel, this session focuses on the challenges, opportunities and evolving best practices needed to raise awareness of the hazards of cell phone distractions on campus.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+ Understand the impact of cell phone distractions on campus safety
+ Become familiar with resources for increasing awareness of distracted driving/walking
+ Learn about best practices and policies for managing the hazards of cell phone distractions

The Case of the Missing Study-abroad Student
(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) Learn how the Rhode Island School of Design International Incident Response Team (IIRT) responded when a parent called to tell us that his son never arrived at the airport back home after his international program ended. We will review the risk management strategies that we employ prior to travel with our faculty and students, and then walk through our response when we got the call that a student was missing. During the session, the presenter will share resources, such as our campus response chart for all international incidents and a list of questions to use for gathering information when a student abroad is reported as missing.

Session attendees will leave with a better understanding of:

+ What to think about when selecting students for international programs
+ What type of predeparture training can help students and faculty studying abroad
+ how to respond to a missing student report, including which insurance policies are activated

Disaster! How to establish PML for Art and Library Collections / How to get the most out of your Fine Art Insurance Policy
(Core Competency #1: Risk Management Technical Skills) This presentation will have two components: establishing Probably Maximum Loss for art and reducing the cost of risk at libraries/museums.

The first part of the session will review in detail the impact of fire, smoke and water on different building construction types, building layout and design, protection systems and the elusive nature of smoke and smoke damage. The purpose of this detail is to understand how much damage an event can cause and how much of a building is likely to be affected. It will also go into detail on creating disaster plans for both art and book collections. The purpose of the panel is to help risk managers, museum registrars and librarians prepare for a catastrophic event and to aid them in setting appropriate limits of insurance.
The second part of the panel discussion is to discuss how to reduce the cost of risk for libraries and museums. . Most Risk Managers know that they can insure traditional fine art on their fine art insurance, but did they know that they can also insure circulating libraries, musical instruments and scientific equipment amongst other things? This portion of the presentation will discuss the benefits of transferring exposures from a straight property policy to a fine art policy and how to go about that process.

As a result of this session, attendees will:

+ Learn the factor that contribute to or inhibit damage from a fire to understand the scope of potential loss from this primary damage source.
+ Understand the nature of secondary damage from smoke and water and how to anticipate the scope of its impact.
+ Create steps that risk managers, museum registrars and librarians can take to prepare for a catastrophe and insure their collections adequately.
+ Learn the cost benefit of insuring libraries, archives, musical instruments and scientific specimens and equipment on their fine art policies.
+ Identify property throughout the campus that can be insured under a fine art policy
+ Understand the documentation needed to be able to insure property under a fine art policy

Liability for Negligent Security in a Changing Mass Casualty Landscape
(Core Competency #2: Strategic Management) This session will explore all the elements that make up an institution’s current security landscape. These include the current climate of shifting threats as well as the evolving mitigation techniques that feed into negligent security as a liability claim and security as a market force. We will explain the current threat landscape, from global terrorism threats and their domestic implications to more common violent crime trends. We will then explain how those trends feed into shifting concepts of “foreseeable threats” and “reasonable security measures” with respect to a premises liability / negligent security case. We will delve deeper into student and parent expectations, plus best practices by institutions.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees:

+ Better understand the current terrorism and mass casualty landscape
+ Better understand what makes up a negligent security liability case and the rising bar defendants must meet to defeat a negligent security claim
+ Take away strategies to proactively prepare to defend potential cases as well as strategies for mitigating the chance of, or at least damage from, acts of violence on campus

Design and Use of Tabletop Exercises for Emergency Planning
(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) Every school will face a crisis from time to time, and we know that the handling of that crisis has far-reaching implications for the institution’s reputation. The actions of the crisis team – how well prepared they are, how quickly they respond, and how they handle communication – can make or break the school’s reputation. Tabletop exercises, which bring together members of the institution’s crisis team to deal with a simulated disaster scenario, are one of the best risk management tools available for emergency planning. This session will show how your school can make these sessions more beneficial and interesting, as well as how you can use them to prepare more of your school’s community for the inevitable crisis.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Understand how tabletop exercises improve the ability to effectively respond to crisis situations
+ Learn best practices for designing and implementing tabletop exercises
+ Acquire different ideas on how to use tabletop exercises to more fully engage the campus community and raise awareness about what to do during a crisis

How to Respond when asked “Do we have sufficient insurance?”
(Core Competency #2: Strategic Management) We all know this is not a simple question. Recent high-profile claims and events are prompting boards and other senior administrators to ask whether their institutions have the right coverage and sufficient limits in place to respond to a catastrophic event. Anticipating the question and planning your response may make the difference between getting a seat at the decision table or simply being a backroom resource to the discussion.
Speakers will explore how to help the board understand what questions they should be asking and how calculating the total cost of risk (TCOR) and simple risk mapping techniques can broaden the board’s thinking about risk and risk mitigation. They’ll also discuss some of the situations that are causing increased concern about limit adequacy and breadth of coverage, as well as how the 3% rule and peer benchmarking can help to answer questions about coverage.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will gain a better understanding of:

+ How to prepare a response to the question “Do we have enough insurance?”
+ TCOR and risk mapping techniques
+ How the 3% rule and peer benchmarking can help determine adequate coverage
+ Key elements that should be included in one’s answer to the board
