The Interconnectedness of Risk in Higher Education: From Strategic Threat Assessment to Practical Shared Risk Management Approaches



Date: October 07, 2019

Location: Nixon Peabody, Rochester office

Nixon Peabody attorney Michael Cooney will be the keynote speaker at the UNYCC Fall Meeting.

From the conference website:
In our rapidly changing environment, colleges and universities are re-thinking their approach to risk. Rather than thinking of risk as confined to compliance, internal audit, safety, and insurance, institutions of higher education understand that the risk portfolio touches all areas of campus. UNYCC promotes proactive local strategies and seeks collaborative opportunities to ensure that our institutions not only survive but thrive together.

Michael J. Cooney, Partner, Nixon Peabody, LLP, will examine recent threats including those around admissions and recruitment, Title IX, the legal and financial risks as associated with current offerings and reaching into new lines of business. Mike will provide an alternative approach to current ERM in an attempt to account for our rapidly changing environment.
