Pre-Conference Workshop #3: Risk Management 101: Practical Application for Higher Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Risk means different things to different people. Some are risk averse while others are risk takers. Some campus departments see an issue as a risk to their activities while others see the same issue as a benefit.

Risk Management 101: Practical Application for Higher Education, a FREE four-hour long session, will provide participants with an opportunity to explore what risk looks like for them, as well as have the opportunity to compare and contrast those ideas with their constituents at other institutions. Experienced higher education risk managers will facilitate discussion on how you can utilize this information to begin developing a risk management plan for your school.

This workshop will explore how attendees can make risk management "real” for others on their campus by utilizing formal risk management processes to identify, mitigate and respond to potential exposures. Participants will be given the opportunity to network with their colleagues to discuss concerns, strategies, roadblocks, and navigational tools that will allow them to begin important conversations on their campuses.

The workshop is geared toward professionals new to risk management and those new to higher education. Participants will have a chance to meet their new colleagues in a smaller setting before the conference. New members and first time conference attendees will also be invited to join us for the President's Reception later this evening!
