State Mandated Risk Management Training for Student Organizations

UTSA Student Organizations are required to send two students leaders each academic year to a State Mandated Risk Management Training provided by the Office of Student Activities. Advisors of student organizations are required to attend only one time.

Once the organization has had two leaders attend a training session, it is the duty of those representatives to ensure the members of their organization are aware of the information presented. The links below in the resource section will provide you the tools to assist you in presenting the material to your organization.

In September 2007, the State of Texas passed a law requiring student organization leaders and advisors to attend a training that covers seven risk management topics (alcohol, drugs, hazing, sexual harassment, fire arms/weapons, travel and behavior at organization events). It is the hope of both the State and UTSA that students will practice exceptional risk management techniques in order to have safe and successful student organizations.
