Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is an ongoing process designed to inform and support strategic decision making. It is our goal to effectively identify and manage risk within our campus community.
The ERM process at Carleton involves:
- Risk identification – everyone at Carleton is part of the risk identification process. Risks can be small (i.e. tripping hazards) or large (i.e. global pandemic). Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to raise risk related questions at any time. The Carleton Safety Committee will often identify enterprise risk.
- Risk assessment – designated risk owners actively evaluate risks as they are identified based on their area of experience and expertise. These risk owners will frequently communicate with and engage subject area experts from around campus to secure support for the risk evaluation of likelihood/frequency of a risk event.

- Risk reports are prepared and presented annually to the Leadership Team and Board of Trustees Audit Committee to document our efforts to continuously monitor and track the effectiveness of our risk management program.
