Risk Management

Risk Management is best defined as an attempt to minimize the adverse effects of accidental losses on an organization at a reasonable cost. Risk Management is a constant balancing act between the reduction of losses and the costs involved in achieving the reduction. It must be emphasized that Risk Management decisions are not made solely for financial reasons. The College's mission and other subjective considerations and repercussions in the lives of those in the College community are of prominent importance when any Risk Management decision is made.
