Who manages risk at the University?

Some departments are responsible for managing specific risk areas. For example, the Office of Human Resources manages employment risks. Similarly, Environmental, Health & Safety consults on environmental risks.

However, as employees or agents of the University, we are all risk managers. What does that mean? Whether "risk manager" is in our job title or job description is irrelevant. We all are presented with risk in the workplace. For example, we all have resources at our discretion, such as staff, finances, property and information. What we do or do not do with those resources can either create or mitigate risk.
