What is ERM?
Enterprise risk management (ERM) is a holistic risk management process that empowers campus leaders to discuss and manage risk at an institutional level. It focuses on risks to the entire institution’s mission, reputation, or financial viability, rather than risks to a single department or functional area. Your K-12 school, college, or university can use a proactive ERM model to work collaboratively to minimize risk and find opportunities and common goals across your institution.
