I feel like a burden has been lifted. Risk management had me stressed out because I thought I needed to know everything and I felt I didn’t. The course has provided succinct steps and templates that allow for a solid, thought-out approach to ensure risk is being responsibly addressed. And permission to keep it simple! I certainly do feel better equipped to continue to build a culture of risk management at our institution.
