I am wondering if anyone knows of a location on the web to find examples or good insights on creating a solid and thorough risk management plan for college programs. We do not have a full, complete plan, but more of many guidelines in different places, I want to put together a full plan with activity guidelines.

Keith, I wasn't clear if you were looking for a Risk Management Plan or
an Emergency Response Plan. A Risk Management Plan is of course a huge
thing that covers all aspects of a program from insurance to training
to emergency response. An Emergency Response plan is obviously a subset of this and is strictly focused on how to respond to en emergency. I've included a link to a Risk Management Plan I developed for Princeton. It's a PDF of a MindManager Map which show you some of the major topic areas of a Risk Management Plan. (I find MindManager to be an incredibly helpful software tool for developing things that are this complicated).

I recommend NOLS' Risk Management Training. It is a two day seminar that guides risk managers through the process of building a comprehensive risk management plan. http://www.nols.edu/nolspro/risk_management_admin_training.shtml
