September 26, 2016


The Risk Management and Insurance program received a gift of support from Auto-Owners Insurance on Thursday, September 22, 2016.

On behalf of Auto-Owners, Sara Franks presented the $500 donation to program coordinator David Brown and Management Department Chair Gayle Lopez. These funds will provide students with experiential learning opportunities, such as traveling to industry conferences.

“I am extremely grateful for the support that our academic program and our students receive from Auto-Owners,” said Brown. “This donation is just one of many ways that Auto-Owners supports Risk Management and Insurance education at Ferris State.  They also hire student interns, offer career day events, speak with students and visit classrooms, and promote our educational mission within the industry and community.  I am thankful to have such a generous and engaged industry partner.”
