Risk management is the planning and organizing of cautionary measures aimed at minimizing the adverse effects of accidental and avoidable losses.

Why is managing risk important when teaching a Service Learning course?

There are many groups involved in a Service Learning class: faculty members, students, community members, and the university. Managing risk ensures that the safety and well-being of all parties is taken into account during the service portion of the course. It is important for the faculty member to practice risk management to prevent injury, property damage, and other liability issues.
