Enterprise risk management (ERM) provides a valuable tool for business officers to ensure their institutions’ long-term viability and establishes a framework for strategic oversight of the risks and opportunities facing administrators and governing boards. Panelists will address how to measure the success of ERM; share success stories; and examine how ERM might be used to tackle some of today’s most pressing issues, such as cybersecurity risks and facilities infrastructure.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how the framework of ERM has been adapted for use by colleges and universities.
  • Identify pathways through which an institution can implement ERM.
  • Consider the application of ERM to specific issues facing your institution.
