What is The NCHERM Group Bundle?

The Bundle is an annual subscription that gives you access to all of the services and resources of The NCHERM Group. The eight allied organizations that comprise The NCHERM Group have effectively served the risk management needs of 3,000 colleges and universities. Now, you can access all of our services in one concerted and seamless bundle.

Enterprise risk management is a priority on every campus, but how do we effectively mitigate the risks we’ve identified? The NCHERM Group is the industry leader with fifteen years of proven success at enhancing safety, minimizing risk and avoiding liability. Our tools are well-honed techniques for prevention, training, compliance and professional development. The NCHERM Group is the standard of excellence in higher education for bundled risk management services. While you can’t get risk management in a box, now you can get it in a Bundle. And you know when it’s from The NCHERM Group, it’s the “ensurance” you need.

How can the Bundle do all that

The NCHERM Group leads the higher education field in advancing campus health and safety through prevention practices. Sometimes the obvious is worth stating — risk management is preventing (or mitigating) risks to avoid casualty losses for the institution. If we can prevent the behavior that leads to an injury or harm, we can prevent the claim. If we can prevent the claim, we can prevent the liability or resultant loss. And, we can also enhance the retention, persistence and success of the individual or group for whom injury or harm was avoided, which also enhances the institutional bottom line across all areas of enterprise risk in ways that are more than pecuniary.

The Bottom Line? If we focus on mitigating the risk at its brink, we’ve missed the opportunity to prevent the injury or harm at its inception. That’s our expertise – the art of managing risk at the most elemental levels of prevention. For years, your campus has purchased services and products piecemeal from The NCHERM Group’s eight organizations. They have served you well, but not holistically. All of the techniques, resources, models and trainings from our eight organizations are designed to integrate with each other, support each other and provide synergistic effects in concert that cannot be achieved independently. The Bundle is our way of giving you access to the concerted resources we have available for far less than the cost of engaging our services piecemeal. In one place, you will find all the resources you need for making your campus the kind of institution you want it to be – a community of caring prevention and intervention.

Imagine the benefit of being able to show in court that your campus and its leaders are kept at the leading edge of the field by subscribing to The Bundle. Show that you meet the duty of reasonable care with a comprehensive commitment to staying current, accessing the field’s leading experts for training and implementing models that create best practices for the field. The NCHERM way.

A new era of regulation and enforcement is upon us. Now, more than ever, you need the security of knowing you can prove in court that your campus has met the legal duty of reasonable care. How can you best demonstrate that? A subscription to The Bundle is one of the most powerful tools in your defense arsenal. The Bundle isn’t an insurance policy, but subscribing is “ensurance” you can’t put a price on.

Q:  How do I access my Bundle resources once I subscribe?
A:  Once you have subscribed, you will receive an electronic receipt and an email detailing how to access your subscription by logging into The Bundle User Dashboard. This dashboard tracks your use of The Bundle’s annual benefits for you, and is simple to use. Once you access the dashboard, you will be able to set up your own user names and passwords, and grant access to other administrators from your institution.

A:  Multi-campus colleges or universities need to purchase only one subscription to The Bundle, which can be used at all sites (does not apply to systems).

Q:  Can the campus across town and my campus share the cost of a Bundle?
A:  No. Bundles cannot be shared between two unaffiliated campuses.

Q:  Are there discounts for state systems and other bulk Bundle purchasers?

A:  Yes. For any Bundle level, bulk purchase options are available to make it more cost effective for multiple campuses, consortiums, or organizations to join (this can be used by state systems, by multiple campuses affiliated with a state or national organization, insurer, etc.).

Q:  I am an NCHERM retainer client. Do I also need The Bundle?
A:  Probably not. Campuses that have retained the legal services of The NCHERM Group annually through the Special Counsel Program already receive most of the benefits of The Bundle’s first few subscription levels, plus the legal representation and campus visits that come with the retainer relationship. If you’re interested in learning more about our Special Counsel Program, contact Kate Halligan, Vice President for Client Relations, at (610) 579-3725.

Q:  What are the differences between retaining The NCHERM Group and being a Bundle subscriber?
A:  Subscribers to The Bundle do not have access to The NCHERM Group as legal counsel, only in a consulting capacity. All training by The NCHERM Group is through events, webinars and publications with The Bundle, whereas retainer clients have annual consulting visits to campus by NCHERM Group consultants. Policy review, audits, investigations and specific case management occur through the retainer, but are not available with The Bundle. For more information on the speakers available from The NCHERM Group to visit your campus for training and consultation, click here.
