Abstract: The research aims to study the effectiveness of Risk Management (RM) in achieving sustainability for the University of Hail (UOH). The research tools were represented in the general data questionnaire, the RM effectiveness questionnaire, and the university sustainability questionnaire. The research was conducted on 510 employees (leaders, faculty members, and staff) at the UOH. The research followed the descriptive and analytical approach. It was evident that the UOH attained a high degree of sustainability as a sustainable university (with a sustainable vision and mission, policies and goals, and infrastructure). On the other hand, human cadres’ sustainability was medium. RM’s effectiveness (planning, implementation, and evaluation) at the UOH was high. A directly proportional statistically significant correlation was found at a level of 0.01 between RM and reaching sustainability for the university. The effectiveness of RM as a whole was the most contributing factor in predicting the extent of the impact on achieving the sustainability of UOH as a whole. A statistically significant indication was also found in both achieving sustainability and the level of effectiveness of RM in the UOH, which was perceived by leaders, faculty members, and staff. Administrators and educators at UOH must account for how definitions of RM are tied to an institution’s goals, agendas, and material circumstances. Developing a better understanding of how such definitions emerge can provide greater clarity in enacting change.
