US universities lag in risk management

The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges found that 60% of US institutions surveyed don't use strategic risk assessments to identify major risks, says Insurance Times.

The findings suggest that higher education in the US is lagging behind the private sector in considering risk at a strategic level.

Only 5% of the respondents claim their institutions have exemplary practices for managing major risks.
