Tim Wiseman, the University of Wyoming’s chief risk officer, has been elected to the University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) Board of Directors. Wiseman is one of two new board members selected for a three-year term.

“His election reflects the high regard in which he is held by his peers in higher education risk management,” says Jenny Whittington, the association’s executive director. “He has demonstrated his commitment and dedication to URMIA not only through this leadership position, but in his generous work with others on professional development, his helpful activity in our online peer-to-peer discussion, and much more.”

Wiseman came to UW in 2019 after 10 years at East Carolina University, where he led the effort to develop, implement and sustain the university’s enterprise risk management program. Before entering the risk management field, he served in various command and staff positions for 26 years as a finance officer and resource manager in the U.S. Army, including service as a congressional budget liaison.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Arkansas, an MBA from Syracuse University and an M.S. in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.

URMIA is a nonprofit educational association serving colleges and universities. Its purpose is to promote the advancement and application of effective risk management principles and practices in institutions of higher education.
