The University of Massachusetts System-wide Enterprise Risk Management Program guides and implements an ongoing process to:

  • Proactively identify risks across the University
  • Assess the potential impact of risks on core mission and strategic initiatives
  • Prioritize risks across the University
  • Identify, document and assess strategies to mitigate these risks
  • Monitor risks and risk mitigation actions

The UMass ERM Program provides critical risk information to leadership across the University to enable informed decision-making about strategy, policies and programs.

Our program additionally facilitates:

  • Collaboration across the system on the development and implementation of certain health, safety, and security plans and programs.
  • Communication by being the primary point of contact for the President's Office on domestic and international emergencies.
