Breed named director of Risk Management and Insurance Center at Olivet College
Jul 12, 2011

Carol Breed, J.D., has been named director of the Risk Management and Insurance Center at Olivet College, according to an announcement by Maria Davis, Ph.D., provost and dean of the college.

In her new role, Breed will have primary responsibility for the leadership and administration of the undergraduate and graduate insurance programs at Olivet. She will also assume the coordination of numerous special programs under the guidance of the RMIC’s Advisory Board. These programs include the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame, a partnership with Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and a new collaboration with the Eaton Intermediate School District through which high school students will begin insurance coursework through Olivet.

“Carol is an outstanding professor in our insurance and risk management program and a proven leader, both on campus and off,” said Davis. “We are excited about her new role as director of the Risk Management and Insurance Center and expect that she will continue the tradition of quality and innovation in insurance education for which Olivet College is nationally known.”

Breed, a 1998 Olivet graduate, formerly served as associate professor of business and insurance with the college. She received her Juris Doctor degree with a concentration in litigation from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2001 with cum laude honors. Before attending Olivet, Breed had a successful career in the insurance industry, working for two different agencies over the course of 19 years. She also worked for the State of Michigan Insurance Division as a continuing education course evaluator, and continues to be an insurance educator for multiple external organizations. Breed holds numerous professional certificates and licenses, including that of attorney with the Federal Court of the United States. She has been a member of the faculty at Olivet College since 2001 and was named a full professor in 2010. She also previously served as co-chair of the Business Administration Department.

Breed takes over the position from Mike Hubbel, founding director of the RMIC and a long-time leader in insurance education. Hubbel served as professor of insurance and risk management at Olivet College for 14 years and has been nominated for emeritus status by the Olivet College faculty. He will continue in a consultant role for the college’s graduate and undergraduate insurance programs, which he has been so instrumental in developing.
