CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute
The CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute exposes Ph.D. students and interested faculty in risk and uncertainty to relevant cutting-edge models, tools and theory. Our audience primarily comprises faculty and Ph.D. students interested in the economics of risk who are located at colleges and universities that do not have access to specialized seminars and courses in these areas. Lectures are conducted by leading scholars in the fields of risk and uncertainty located at Georgia State University and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, the 2020 CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Information about the 2021 CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute will be available in the near future.
Sponsors and Funding
The institute is sponsored by the Robinson College of Business’ Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk and the S.S. Huebner Foundation for Insurance Education.
The Riskies Awards, traditionally held as an in-person event, will take place this year through a series of online publications. While the format is different, the spirit and tradition of honoring outstanding members and students of the risk management community remains.
Awards and Nomination Process
The Riskies Awards recognizes active or retired business executives who have demonstrated a career of high achievement and service to the insurance, risk management or related industry and whose achievements and service align with the vision of Robinson's Maurice R. Greenberg School of Risk Science. Recipients are selected by the Riskies Hall of Fame committee, which comprises emeritus faculty and GSU Risk Management Foundation Board of Trustees members.
Bermuda Railway Trek
This annual event was founded in 2004 by Gary Meggs and Greg McCollister to raise money to support insurance-related studies for young Bermudians. The walk supports Bermudians pursuing a risk management or actuarial science undergraduate degree at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. Georgia State has the largest dedicated risk management program in the United States. It is ranked #1 in actuarial science research for the second straight year and is the #4 ranked undergraduate risk management program in the country per U.S. News & World Report. Bermuda College now also has a collaborative and successful 2+2 program, where Bermudians can attend two years of schooling locally and transfer to Georgia State as third-year students.
To date, the fund has awarded in excess of $230,000 in undergraduate scholarships. Our goal is to exceed $250,000 this year. We need YOU to help continue our fundraising efforts, and we look forward to your participation in this year’s Railway Trek!
