Risk Management & Safety would like to thank the campus community for participating in the inaugural Risky Business Week. If you were unable to attend or did attend and would like to view the presentation again, the recorded webinar is now available online. 

The University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) and Cal State San Marcos dedicated the week of November 5 -9, 2012 to the value of risk management in higher education. Risky Business: A Week Focusing on Risk Management’s Contributions to Higher Education focused on building awareness of how risk management can provide innovative and effective solutions to the challenges facing institutions of higher education in the pursuit of their academic, social, and economic goals. The week was also intended to forge campus relationships to create a culture of risk management and better protect individuals served by institutions of higher education.Risky Business: A Week Focusing on Risk Management’s Contributions to Higher Education recognized the risk management professionals who advocate for students, faculty, staff, and the institutions and communities they serve. Risk management on college campuses is everyone’s job; we hope Risky Business Week encouraged stakeholders to work with our risk management team to create a culture of risk management that spans the entire year.

Lunch & Learn Webinar 11/18/12 

"Courageous Risks in Higher Education: Everyone Is a Risk Manager" (November 8, 2012) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZ-z-gb-Vpk

Description: “Courageous risks are life-giving. They help you grow, make you brave and better than you think you are.” - Joan L. Curcio, first female professor in educational administration at Virginia Tech 

The benefit of risk is that along with the possibility of loss comes an opportunity for gain. We want our institutions to grow, be healthy, and provide value to our constituents. Every day, staff, faculty, and students work to tip the balance towards gain through the management of risk. While you already manage risk, this webinar helped attendees further harness these opportunities for gain by putting risk management to good use to find positive, safe ways to accomplish your goals. 

This recorded webinar offers case studies and examples of how attendees can develop their “common sense” instincts into an effective risk management tool to benefit the institution, staff, faculty, and students. Participants came away with new and improved skills to apply in any situation to turn risks into opportunities for gain. The goal of campus risk managers is to find ways to say “yes” to the campus communities they serve. A diverse group of campus professionals highlighted how you can apply new risk management concepts anywhere on your campus.
