Our Vision & Commitments

Risk Management helps UBC plan for the best and mitigate the worst using an integrated Enterprise Risk Management framework. We work with faculty, researchers, students, and administration to identify, assess, and mitigate UBC’s strategic, academic, operational, financial, hazard, and reputational risks.

What is RMS’s vision?

RMS will be a source of empowerment and enablement to the UBC community by weaving risk management into the fabric of the way UBC operates. Together, RMS and the UBC community will view risk management as critical to implementing the University’s strategy.
