Risk Management Toolkit for CICan Members

This project is the first step toward the establishment of sector-wide tools and resources to expand the education abroad capabilities of CICan members, while mitigating risk. The project began with conducting Canada’s first baseline study of risk management practices for education abroad, informed by a sample group of 17 CICan member institutions. Results of this research informed the development of an evidence-based risk management toolkit, which includes a self-assessment checklist + “foundations for excellence” exemplars for pre-departure training, liability waivers, assessing and mitigating risk, strengthening governance and policy, emergency and crisis response, and system integration in for education abroad.
