Engaging the entire campus
Business continuity planning will require the participation and support of all CWRU administrative, academic and research-oriented business units. These business units and academic colleges will be engaged in the plan development process by mapping out critical processes and prioritizing resumption and recovery activities in the aftermath of a crisis event.
In collaboration with the university’s Business Continuity manager, departments will identify resources needed to carry on operations essential to the university’s mission.
Business units or departments will nominate a continuity coordinator who will engage both with the department and the business continuity manager. The coordinator will be a liaison to educate colleagues and provide updates on the university business continuity program. Additionally, the coordinator's chief function will be to manage the process of compiling the plan components as they are determined by the business unit.
