Mercyhurst, Erie Insurance partner to create new program

ERIE, Pa. -- Mercyhurst University and Erie Insurance have partnered together to create a risk management program that's in high demand.

Mercyhurst University announced a $1.25 million dollar investment to create the F.W. Hirt Insurance Risk Management Program.   

"It will be based not only in traditional risk management, but it will also be based in cyber security," Mercyhurst president Michael Victor said.

Mercyhurst University and Erie Insurance partnered together to create the program.

"What we know about the insurance industry that it is aging from an employment perspective,” human resource manager Dionne Wallace Oakley. “And we also want to make sure we're capturing the millennials and get that diversity of thought, the diversity of contributions to our organization."

"We will be searching for a national expert in the field, recruiting them to come to Mercyhurst to form the program,” Victor said. “And we'll be partnering with Erie Insurance with sharing classroom space and some of their learning centers.”
