Risk Management

VWCC has developed a comprehensive "all hazards" safety plan. The plan is designed to prepare us for unlikely events such as hostile situations, as well as likely events such as inclement weather (tornado, snowstorm).

The Risk Management team at Virginia Western Community College is dedicated to protecting the College's human, physical and financial assets through:

  • Prevention of adverse incidents through training, education, and inspection.
  • Timely response to incidents and notifications of hazards.
  • Fair and responsible incident reporting and claims administration.
  • Advising of senior management on how to best provide future protection against key risks given the College's ambitious strategic plans.

We communicate reported information to the necessary College, Local and State agencies to ensure proper recordkeeping, State reporting, and redress of any identified issues. We also maintain a daily focus on employee safety and loss prevention.

The Office of Risk Management is located within the Campus Police Department. If you have questions or concerns about Risk Management related issues please call Craig S. Harris at (540) 857-7797.
