Coalition for College Cost Savings

As a former CFO of two private, non-profit colleges, I understand the unique challenges and limitations facing CFOs and Risk Managers. It was important for The Coalition to partner with a broker that understands and is committed to our Private, Non-Profit Colleges. By leveraging the strength of The Coalition’s over 900 Colleges and Universities, the Coalition program through IMA allows our schools to Transform Processes, Reduce Costs and Increase Efficiencies.

– Lyen Crews, President, The Coalition for College Cost Savings


“Private colleges are all about partnerships and collaboration. This collaboration on Property & Casualty Insurance by IMA allows our members to leverage property and liability carriers to secure lower rates – something they have not been able to do before. This collaborative venture provides comprehensive coverage, specifically tailored to the needs of the private college campuses, while reducing insurance costs and improving asset protection. In addition, this ICUT collaboration will further reduce costs for participating private colleges as additional members join the group.”

– Ray Martinez, President, ICUT

IMA is the broker of choice for the KICA. We have seen an immediate positive impact since joining this program. The results we’ve seen are a great example of how the KICA program, under IMA’s management, can achieve significant results for each member.”

– Matt Lindsey, President of the KICA
