Your Member Benefits

Comprehensive Coverage

Because UE understands the unique risk profile of K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, we provide coverage addressing your institution’s needs so you can focus on your educational mission. We remain committed to covering risks that other insurance carriers limit or avoid, such as traumatic brain injury and sexual abuse and misconduct. As partners with our members, we’re continuing to offer coverage despite fluctuations in the commercial insurance market, social inflation, and other outside factors.
