Illinois Risk Lab

Officially established in Fall 2018, the Illinois Risk Lab (IRisk Lab) grew out of the Undergraduate Research Program in Risk and Actuarial Science, which was sponsored by the Society of Actuaries from 2014 to 2017. IRisk Lab currently serves as an industry-academic collaboration hub, facilitates integration of discovery-based learning experience for students, and showcases state-of-the-art research in all areas of risk analysis and advanced analytics.
