Case In Point:
Lessons for the pro-active manager
Vol. 7 No. 6

This month we conclude our look back at 2014 events from Case in Point with a focus on the Campus Life Category. This category typically includes stories that are directly related to students and their unique risks related events that have occurred on campuses.

As you would expect, this category has substantial variety as there are numerous risks that can come into play that affect students. The risks in this category are clearly important as a major risk failure can quickly damage a reputation that took years to cultivate. Therefore we need all faculty, staff, and administrators cognizant of the campus related events that are occurring in our industry with a keen focus on proactive risk management.

The top issues within this category involved campus crime/safety issues (25%), student related health issues (18%), sex-related issues (12%), alcohol (10%), hazing (8%), and racial issues (8%). Generally, these are the same topics that we have seen the past few years; however, there are always issues arising within almost every one of those general issues each year.

As we noted last month in discussing compliance issues, it is more important than ever for all stakeholders to let someone know when they become aware of a potential issue or problem. While we hope you can raise these concerns through your normal chain of management, remember that our EthicsPoint anonymous reporting system is there for situations where you do not feel that is an option.

We again invite you to review the events occurring throughout higher education over the past month and consider whether proactive attention is needed with respect to any of these issues here at AU. As always we invite your comments or questions with respect to any of these issues.
