Enterprise risk management

Risk management is a logical and systematic method of enabling an organization to maximize opportunities and minimize losses.

The university has adopted a university-wide risk management approach to:

  • identify responsibilities both corporate and individual
  • enhance the safety of the members of the university community
  • ensure the continuity of operations
  • support effective governance of the university
  • improve communication within the university about new initiatives and potential risks and benefits
  • enhance efficiency and effectiveness of operations
  • protect the reputation of the university
  • improve the protection of university assets
