Gamma Iota Sigma

   Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS) is the International Risk
   Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science Collegiate
   Fraternity. The University of Louisiana at Monroe
   founded its chapter of GIS in 2002 and since then, it
   has also operated as the Risk Management and
   Insurance or RMI Society.


GIS is designed to foster the study of risk management and insurance in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activities, and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the risk management and insurance industry and students of risk management and insurance; and to further a high standard of ethics at universities and in the industry.
