The Risk and Insurance Industry Summit for Student Engagement (RIS2E) is a daylong seminar that provides opportunities for St. Mary’s students to interact with risk management and insurance industry leaders. At the event, students help lead informal discussions on selected themes, topics and issues of interest and relevancy to the industry. Seminar attendance is limited to 40 industry professionals to assure the group remains small enough for active participation. RIS2E encourages students to build professional relationships, gain industry knowledge and strengthen their successful entry into the field.

The mix of risk management, insurance brokerage and insurance company participants makes RIS2E unique in comparison to other industry conferences.

RIS2E 2020

The 2020 RIS2E will take place on Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20, 2020, on the St. Mary’s University campus. Registration for RIS2E participants also includes attendance to the annual Risk Management Student Recognition, Alumni and Industry Appreciation Banquet on the evening of April 7.
