What is Business Continuity Planning?

Universities face unique vulnerabilities when faced with major disruptions like natural disasters, health epidemics, or IT systems failures. While Emergency Response Plans protect life and secure facilities, Business Continuity Planning (BCP) allows departments to continue or rapidly resume mission critical functions like teaching, research, or student housing. Through continuity planning, we can all help maintain the operations, reputation, and revenue of our individual departments and the University as a whole.

Risk Management and Insurance offers a variety of options to help you with business Continuity, including presentations, workshops, and assistance with plan development. Contact Risk Management BCP Program
