Join us for a breakfast discussion on how enterprise risk management and strategic planning functions should intersect to enhance the operational efficiencies at your institution.

In today’s challenging and turbulent higher education environment, taking a strategic approach to risk management is more important than ever. Current events at colleges and universities across the country over the past six months illustrate how quickly past accomplishments and accolades can evaporate, emphasizing the urgency of implementing an integrated approach to strategic planning and enterprise risk management (ERM) processes.

In this education session, we will:

  • Review key components of ERM
  • Help you understand the consequences of a poor or non-existent ERM program
  • Identify best practices and lessons learned in strategic planning
  • Identify key success factors of an integrated approach to ERM and strategic planning
  • Discuss methods for how to get started with an integrated approach


  • Mark Laccetti, Partner
  • Frank Bossle, Director
  • John Park, Director
  • Adrienne Larmett, Senior Manager

All of our speakers are members of Baker Tilly’s higher education risk, internal audit and cybersecurity consulting team.
