Zell Center for Risk Research

The goal of the Zell Center for Risk Research is to promote the study and understanding of the way people perceive risk, the effects of these perceptions, and the management of risk. The Zell Center reaches its goal by encouraging academic research in this area and, communicating  the results of this research to a wide audience of academics, students, and practitioners.

To encourage academic research in this area, particularly among Kellogg School faculty, the center provides financial support for faculty research. Center visitors are invited to speak and present materials to stimulate thinking in this field and work with Kellogg School faculty to produce new ideas.

The center also supports the communication of relevant academic research to students, practitioners, and faculty in a number of ways, including sponsoring academic and student-led conferences, supporting the development of a curriculum focused on risk, providing scholarships for students pursuing studies in risk, and supporting the Kellogg School’s Asset Management Practicum.
