Risk Planning and its Critical Role in Higher Education

Enterprise risk management is a critical part of higher education’s toolkit in preparing for and mitigating disruptions. As mentioned in part 1 of the Enterprise Risk Management in Higher Ed series, these disruptions can be hazards/accidents, societal, governmental, and technology. There are two parts of enterprise risk management—risk planning, which is done by the institution’s administration, and risk oversight, which is done by the institution’s board of trustees. This blog will focus specifically on risk planning and a later blog will address risk oversight.

Just think of the implications of COVID-19, which has turned everything in the world upside down.
