Managing University Risk
California State University CSU Executive Order No. 1069 (PDF) charges each campus president to develop a risk management policy, and SJSU Presidential Directive 2005-01 outlines the program at San José State University.
Risk management is the process to best handle uncertainty as to whether or not losses will occur. We work to decrease the frequency and severity of losses or prevent them altogether.
Managing risk ensures that resources are used for established purposes, rather than funding losses. All faculty, staff and managers play a role in managing risk at SJSU. Before you plan an event or an activity, you need to consider the potential risks involved and how to deal with them. You identify risks that can be reduced or prevented.
The Risk Management office also administers the SJSU Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). We provide access to insurance for Foreign Travel and Special Events.
