Jeff Barrett, risk manager here at SHU, has been awarded a regional conference scholarship by the University Risk Management and Insurance Association. The organization promotes effective risk management principles and practices in institutions of higher education. Barrett was selected based on his high qualifications in the field of risk management.
Only five people across the United States were selected to receive a scholarship for the organization’s 2014 regional conferences. Barrett will represent the University at the Northeastern Regional Conference on April 22 in Babson Park, Mass. The $500 scholarship will help to cover travel, registration and other related expenses.
