About Us

The Office of Risk Management is a composition of risk, insurance, compliance, and internal audit. 

We support the strategic planning process by working to raise awareness of risks that may adversely affect its successful implementation. We are committed to fostering a culture of risk ownership throughout the university. This does not mean we avoid engaging in activities that have risk or that we avoid risk in our teaching and research and other activities we undertake for the university.  We recognize that both strategic and operational decisions and the work undertaken by faculty, staff, and employees, all inherently involve risk. The university is committed to academic freedom. 

We are committed to providing strategic leadership and direction in the evolution and implementation of enterprise risk management, which ensures a consistent and proactive approach. In consultation with all levels of the organization, we integrate risk management strategies across the university to ensure risks impacting the strategic objectives are effectively identified and managed on a priority basis.
