Risk Management Strategies for Student Organizations

 

In response to student deaths and injuries related to hazing and student organization functions, House Bill 2639/Senate Bill 1138 was enacted by the 80th Texas Legislature. The bill requires faculty advisors and members of student organizations to undergo “Risk Management Training” that must deal with the following elements:

  1. Possession and use of alcohol and drugs
  2. Hazing
  3. Sexual abuse and harassment
  4. Fire, safety issues and possession of firearms
  5. Student travel
  6. Behavior at student organization events
  7. Adoption of a risk management policy

The PowerPoint audio/video presentation “Risk Management Strategies for Student Organizations” satisfies these training requirements. (You also can view slides of the PowerPoint presentation.)

Faculty advisors and members of student organizations must attend risk management training beginning the fall of 2008. All members of student organizations must be informed when the training is to occur or informed of how to meet training requirements.

Records of attendance must be maintained for 3 years. Use the RMSSO Attendance Record (PDF - 31KB), or any other suitable recording method, to record members who have received the training.
