Last month we concluded our look back at 2013's ''events by category'' we linked here in Case in Point. We have been providing this monthly communication now for six and a half years. Case in Point has grown from an original e-mail list of about seventy recipients all on Auburn University's campus to a current distribution of more than one-thousand recipients in thirty-five states.
Since we have many new readers from our original distribution, this month we wanted to briefly discuss Case in Point's purpose. The purpose of this communication is two-fold: culture change and education. We believe that pro-actively managing risk makes a lot more sense than reacting to crisis and that we can learn from the events happening at other institutions.
Our suggestion in this publication is really very simple: scan the events by category and if you see items of interest to your area of operation, read the story and consider what you can do to pro-actively prevent a similar incident from happening in your sphere of influence. Institutions can implement many different programs to manage risk, but it could be the best program is a campus of well-educated, pro-active risk managers. Everyone on campus is managing risk, some are simply more conscious of the fact than others. We hope this month's survey of higher education helps you become even more of that type of leader and influencer.
