Risk Management Strategies for Student Clubs and Organizations

Risk Management Strategies for Student Clubs and Organizations

In response to student deaths and injuries related to hazing and student clubs/organization functions, House Bill 2639/Senate Bill 1138 was enacted by the 80th Texas Legislature. The bill requires advisors and members of student clubs/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 (Club Sign In Sheet)

This PowerPoint presentation “DMC Risk Management Strategies for Student Clubs/Organizations” satisfies the training requirements.

All advisors and members of student clubs/organizations must attend risk management. The annual Risk Management Training is held during the annual club luncheon. All members of student clubs/organizations must be informed when the training is to occur or informed of how to meet training requirements. If clubs/organizations representative is not able to attend the annual club luncheon then they are required to review the PowerPoint “DMC Risk Management Strategies for Student Clubs/Organizations and provide document of the sign in sheet to the Office of Student Leadership & Campus Life.

Records of attendance must be maintained for 3 years, or any other suitable recording method, to record members who have received the training.
