Early reporting and active involvement by the institution and UE aressential for successful claims resolution. An institution that fails to meet the reporting responsibilities outlined in its insurance policy risks denial of coverage or loss of full benefits. Reporting considerations vary with the type of policy.
For 30 years, UE has protected K-12 and higher ed institutions with our broad liability coverage, education-specific risk management resources, and mission-driven claims handling. We understand the unique risk profiles of schools, colleges, and universities and tailor every policy to provide the appropriate coverage for each institution. We don’t shy away from risks that other insurance carriers limit or avoid, such as athletics, sexual misconduct, armed security guards, alcohol, tenure, and intellectual property.
With insurance coverage all UE members have access to EduRisk, an extensive suite of risk management resources that address specific situations at schools and on campus that lead to claims. Articles, blogs, risk assessments, podcasts, and webinar recordings are readily available when you need them— from behind your desk or on the go with EduRisk’s mobile-friendly format. And training administrators can explore blended learning programs, preview online courses, and obtain assistance with training implementation.

Canopy Programs by United Educators provides institution-specific, programmatic solutions to schools, colleges, and universities looking to address high priority risks. Launched as part of UE’s initiative to ensure the long-term sustainability of educational institutions, Canopy Programs offer a holistic view of the risks that most often detract from the educational mission.
Through its initial product, Campus Forward: The Harassment Initiative, Canopy Programs takes a comprehensive approach to issues of workplace harassment, discrimination, and sexual violence. This program enables colleges and universities to blend best practices with unique aspects of their institution, and engages multiple stakeholders to amplify the impact of efforts. Creating a respectful, inclusive campus culture can be most effectively facilitated through a joint effort among student affairs, human resources, the business office, and other key roles on campus.
