About the Report

Each year, United Educators (UE) members share their institution’s most pressing risks in the Top Risk Survey. This year’s survey reveals the self-reported top risks across the UE higher education membership and notes changes over the past few years. Members also commented on the impact of employee retention and hiring on their ability to manage risk. Use this report to compare your institution’s risks against the UE membership.
