Risk Management and Campus Security

College and University Business Administration, 7th edition - Risk Management
Risk management is not just about insurance or financial loss. It is about managing the entire range of threats to the well-being of an institution. In its broadest sense, risk can be defined as any issue that could impact the ability of the institution to meet its objectives. This chapter is a resource for individuals with oversight of risk management.

Author Mark S. Beasley focuses on the business officer's leadership role in strengthening the institution's risk management oversight process to take advantage of upcoming opportunities and minimize potential threats. Part of NACUBO's Perspectives series, this paper is free to members.
