Risk Management

Insurance & Liability

Risk Management and Employee Ethics works closely with several other college departments and the State of Arkansas Department of Insurance and seek to inform and assist the college community to minimize the risk of personal injuries, property losses or vehicle accidents involving college facilities or property. NWACC maintains appropriate insurance policies to protect college property, college employees and college students consistent with goals and resources of the college.

The Executive Director for Risk Management is responsible to report any incidents or occurrences at any NWACC facility that may involve an insurance claim. Please contact Ethan Beckcom at 479-936-5173 or ebeckcom@nwacc.edu to report any incident or occurrence.
