Advance student success with risk-based internal audit

Advancing institutional sustainability and student pathways with a risk-based internal audit

Baker Tilly’s higher education risk specialists recently presented a webinar for the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB).

To drive student and institutional success, it is critical for higher education boards and leaders to have a strong understanding of your institution’s risks and the effectiveness of your risk mitigation practices. Today’s internal audit functions should provide a strategic, objective and cross-sectional view of the institutional risk profile. In this webinar, we explore the power of a risk-based internal audit program. We discuss how an internal audit can offer insights to drive positive change in the following areas:

  • Inclusive excellence
  • Student mental health and well-being
  • Student accessibility
  • Enrollment management, including transfer students

Key takeaways

After viewing this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Identify high priority risks to student success, including on critical topics such as academic integrity, student mental health and inclusive excellence
  2. Discuss how the internal audit function can help provide transparency and insight into these risks
  3. Understand how internal audits can help the board to better oversee risk and risk mitigation to drive student success
