About the Report

Each year, United Educators (UE) members share their institution’s most pressing risks in the Top Risk Survey. This year’s survey reveals the self-reported top risks across the UE higher education membership and notes changes over the past few years. Members also commented on the impact of employee retention and hiring on their ability to manage risk. Use this report to compare your institution’s risks against the UE membership.


About UE
UE provides liability insurance and risk management services to about 1,600 members representing K-12 schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States. Learn more about our coverage for higher education.

Key Takeaways

  • While enrollment is the top risk again, recruitment and hiring jumped to become one of higher education’s top risks.
  • Risks related to sexual misconduct, including Title IX, dropped relative to other risks.
  • Many members report that the difficult labor market has affected their ability to manage risk.
