Legal and Risk Management for Managers
Risk management is the identification, assessment and prioritization of risks and the development of programs and resources to minimize or control the impact of those risks on the University. Strategies used to manage risk include transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effect of the risk, or accepting some, or all, of the consequences of the risk.
SMU is committed to a strong and active risk management program which includes appropriately managing contracts entered into on behalf of the University. Knowing the resources and programs available to manage risk at SMU, as well as the appropriate procedures to follow when risk is encountered, will support the University's goal of creating a safe and healthy environment for all employees.
Attendance in this workshop will acquaint managers with the basics of contract negotiation at SMU as well as the tools and resources available to them to support the University's efforts to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for all employees through a managed risk assessment program.
