Case In Point:
Lessons for the pro-active manager
Vol. 7 No. 8

August marks the beginning of the new academic year and is a time typically filled with optimism and excitement regarding the activities and events that will transpire over the coming year. Also with the new academic year come new or revised goals and objectives for individuals, organizations, and institutions that they will seek to fulfill in the coming months.

Goals and objectives are certainly good things for all of us (and our operations) to have considered and even documented in some way. Things that can keep us from achieving these goals and objectives are what we call risks. Within our industry of higher education there is no shortage of risk we will encounter. In fact, some have even indicated that higher education may face more unique and diverse risks than just about any industry you can find.

Since its inception, Case in Point has sought to help administrators become more aware of both current and newly emerging risks facing higher education and to proactively manage high risk activities before a problem occurs. We believe prevention is superior to remediation in numerous ways and hope this survey of current events has helped you proactively manage risks in your unique area of influence.

So as you scan the stories in this month's publication we again invite you to ask that same question we did when we began this publication in January 2009: "What can I do to prevent this from occurring here?" We believe that is still a worthwhile question. As always we invite your feedback and comments.
