From the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, through the Great Recession of 2008, to the right-wing riots in the normally quiet college town of Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, one lesson has been driven home to higher education administrators: The new century is a dangerous time, ripe with risks, and those risks span a spectrum from campus violence to financial crises.

While some colleges and universities still deal with risk on an ad hoc, informal, case-by-case basis, savvy campus leaders are turning to the formal, continuous process known as Enterprise Risk Management. ERM is designed to identify, assess, prioritize and manage all institutional risks in a holistic manner involving faculty and staff buy-in across the length and breadth of the campus community.

Please join Jim Castagnera as he delineates a proven ten-step process for establishing an effective ERM program.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • How to define for your stake holders what your university will gain from ERM
  • What are the practical standards and frameworks for an effective, efficient ERM program
  • How to inventory what your university is already doing by way of risk management
  • How to marshal support for your ERM program from across your institution
  • How to keep it simple, while being inclusive and comprehensive
  • How to start small and build on a solid foundation
  • How to identify and achieve quick wins
  • How to identify risk owners and delegate fixes
  • Effective ways to report progress to university leaders, including thought leaders
  • What are the soft-skills you should bring to bear on the ERM initiative
