Risk Management

In accordance with Texas state law, all Baylor University student organizations are required to attend a risk management program offered each semester by the Department of Student Activities.  

Student Organization Summit

The Student Organization Summits are hosted at the beginning of each semester to provide the required risk management program to student organizations.  Dates for the Fall 2022 semester will be announced in August.

Student organization advisors are required to attend a similar training session offered through the Student Organization Advisor Summits.  

Who Must Attend

All Baylor University student organizations are required to send officers to the mandatory risk management program upon the outset of their service and on an annual basis.  Representatives must include, but are not limited to, the organization president, risk management officer, and organization advisors. 

Advisors serving multiple years with a given organization must attend their first year of service and at least once every three years thereafter.

Non-Compliant Organizations

Student organizations that do not meet the requirements for risk management training will be declared inactive and are prohibited from participating in and hosting all events.
