Education and Training

Risk Management & Audit Services offers a variety of educational opportunities to members of the Harvard community, including:

Fraud and the Workplace training: Using a combination of case studies, recent examples of fraud in higher education, and group discussion, this course seeks to raise awareness of the potential for fraud, to discuss the indicators of fraud, and to outline the steps to take if you suspect fraud.

Participants will gain a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities in protecting the University's resources while promoting an environment consistent with the University's values and objectives.
