Implementation and Oversight

Implementing the Gold Standard 2020

Built into the Gold Standard 2020 are specific strategies that directly address risks identified during the planning process.  Since these risk areas affect all aspects of Western Michigan University’s mission and operations, they are critical tools in the implementation and oversight of the plan. The implementation approach is to integrate risk management into the strategic deliberations of senior leaders, board trustees, and shared governance partners to position WMU to accomplish its long-term goals and objectives. Implementation and reporting of the Gold Standard 2020 will be led by the Strategic Management Executive Council (SMEC) in collaboration with Collaborative Risk/Opportunity Management (CRŌM) Actions Teams.
