Most student affairs and higher education professionals aren’t drawn to the industry to manage risk. But, as it turns out, it’s a big part of the job. And while it’s not the most thrilling and exciting aspect of our work, it is a very important one. Equipping yourself with the knowledge and foresight to be able to manage the risks associated with your department’s programming and events is crucial to your work in higher education. But where do you start?

With our latest eBook!

Creating experiences and learning environments that involve risk can most certainly be rewarding, but it is up to the institution to ensure that safeguards are in place to minimize risk, promote safety, and be able to respond appropriately in the case of the worst-case scenario actually happening. In this eBook, we’ll take a closer look at the risk management process in higher education, equipping with you with the ability to identify the level of risk associated with your events and take the necessary steps to mitigate those risks.

Not only will the eBook walk you through the various steps of risk management in event planning, but it also provides a helpful worksheet for determining your office or department’s programming risk level, and specific factors to consider which may elevate that risk. We’ve even included space for you to capture some of your unique programming and events that are specific to your institution!

So, while thinking about all that could go wrong is not the most fun part of planning a program or event, it is a vitally important step in the process. We hope this eBook provides you with helpful information and guidance as you plan your next event. As always, let us know what you think @LearnForwardHE.
