As universities around the world continue to expand and diversify their offerings and operations, they face increasingly complex challenges and risks. Many universities today have ad hoc and decentralized risk management programs, and in many cases, individual colleges, departments or groups independently manage their respective risks in disjointed silos. As such, the likelihood of critical risks falling through the cracks is high.

Universities face a broad range of risks in areas such as the safety of their staff and students, the security of physical, financial, and intellectual assets, increasing competition, and the rising importance of reputation. Universities today need to revamp and scale their risk management efforts by leveraging a technology-driven solution, equipped with flexible and automated tools and capabilities. Doing so can help universities proactively identify and mitigate their risks, especially those which have the potential to disrupt critical university functions and activities. Universities can also leverage risk information to identify emerging opportunities to drive innovation and pursue new growth opportunities.

Join John Lammey, Associate Director of Risk and Insurance at University of Ottawa, and Bradley Artigue, Senior Director of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services at MetricStream, as they offer valuable insights on how universities can build a progressive risk management program which can modernize their operations, and provide value to various stakeholder groups, including the larger student body, faculty, and research community.

The speakers will also provide insights on:

  • Recognizing the need to re-instate key university processes
  • Drawbacks of using traditional risk management methods
  • Advantages of innovative and cost-effective technology solutions
