The Risk Management and Insurance Program Raised Over $25,000 for Student Scholarships

The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) program at EKU hosted its 29th annual golf outing at EKU’s Arlington golf course. The RMI program successfully raised over $25,000 during this golf outing event, and the money will go to support scholarships for many of our more than 100 RMI students.

More than 100 registered golfers participated in this event, including many of our alumni. Beyond the financial benefit, the RMI golf outing also provides networking opportunities for our students to engage with local risk management and insurance professionals. The golf outing has served as a pathway for our students, so that once they are ready to graduate, they have a professional network ‚Äčto help them hit the ground running.

Alex Barton, a recent RMI graduate added that “I personally experienced the benefits of [EKU’s golf outing] when I was [a] risk management and insurance student. I got to go to Dallas with the Gamma Iota Sigma Insurance Society and experience great trips while never having to pay out of pocket.” He went on to say, “Eastern Kentucky University’s Risk Management and Insurance department gave me the tools to be confident in scenarios like this and beyond that I am currently experiencing. [You] really can do whatever you want in this industry as long as you have the get up and go. So I think it has done a fantastic job for me and many of my colleagues and fellow classmates.”

As the only RMI degree program offered in Kentucky, EKU’s RMI program has educated the brightest and most talented students in the insurance industry since the 1980s. Now, EKU students can benefit from either a 100 percent online risk management and insurance degree program, or an on-campus program. This allows students to choose what works best for them and their lifestyle.  The RMI program has gained tremendous support from local insurance companies and insurance agencies in the form of scholarships, internships and job opportunities.
