About ERM at TCNJ

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a continuous business process, led by senior leadership that extends the concepts of risk management and includes:

– Identifying risks across the entire institution;
– Assessing the impact of risks to the operations and mission;
– Developing and implementing response or mitigation plans; and
– Monitoring the identified risks, holding the risk owner accountable, and consistently scanning for emerging risks.

Adopted From: Risk Management – An Accountability Guide for University and College Boards. 2013 Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges

The Objectives of ERM Include:

– Identifying and assessing a broad array of risks that could impact the achievement of institutional goals and objectives
– Ensuring appropriate ownership and accountability of risks
– Developing and implementing appropriate risk mitigation and monitoring plans by risk owners
– Establishing a program structure that engages functional leaders across the campus to identify and prioritize risks
