The value of United Educators (UE) membership extends far beyond the insurance policy. Member institutions have access to our education-specific risk management resource library, including media, online courses, and publications.
Through our broad liability coverage, education-specific risk management resources, and mission-driven claims handling, we provide schools, colleges, and universities with the protection they need so that they can focus on their educational mission.
UE distributes insurance and risk management services exclusively through our valued network of brokers and agents. We believe that strong relationships with experienced brokers makes a difference for our members when determining how to best address an institution’s unique coverage needs.
With about 1,600 members ranging from large university systems to small, independent K-12 schools, UE remains committed to providing the coverage and tools needed to confidently operate your campus while managing education-specific risks. We strive to provide you with peace of mind so you can focus on what’s important – delivering a high-quality academic experience.
Since our founding in 1987, our focus has been exclusively on education and finding new ways to meet your insurance coverage needs, manage risk, and efficiently resolve claims.
UE is the leading risk transfer and risk management partner of choice for educational institutions.
United Educators helps educational institutions identify, prevent, respond to, and recover from adversity and risks, enabling them to advance their mission.
