Risk Management Team

Anderson University understands its moral commitment to protect faculty, staff, and students. We actively pursue a safe and healthy living and working environment. In this effort, we have a campus crisis management team to create calm, quick and effective responses during times that may be frantic, stressful, and tense.

Crises provide one of the most significant tests of an organization. How Anderson University manages crises is as much a reflection of the quality of our college as are our daily operations. AU must be prepared for a crisis before it happens. A state of readiness helps the University to be proactive, not reactive, in times of crisis.

The Risk Management Team (RMT) has been intentionally structured to include people with key decision-making authority for the University. The function of the RMT is not to override the established hierarchy of the University, but crisis situations sometimes create unusual circumstances that require timely decisions. In these situations, the RMT, in consultation with the President whenever possible, will have reasonable latitude and responsibility to act with prudence.


The Risk Management Committee exists to assess enterprise risks and potential crises across the institution and put in place those programs and procedures that will best protect the life and safety of people, minimize damage to facilities, assure open communication, and residually minimize legal and financial risks to the institution.
