The Center for Insurance Research
From the Director
This Center for Insurance Research has been actively engaged in promoting interdisciplinary research on risk and insurance-related topics across campus. We’ve invited speakers from several institutes across campus to share their research agendas and look forward to strengthening these relationships through collaborative research projects. We’re also actively hosting researchers from universities around the world. Click on the “Center Activities” link to read more about all of our visiting speakers.
