As a sponsor, you are taking on the risks that come with the SSO. It can be a scary proposition. However, the benefits that the SSO offer the University almost always outweigh the risks. Be optimistic about what the SSO brings to the table. At the same time, bridle your optimism with healthy skepticism by carefully considering the amount of risk you are willing to accept as a sponsor. Working through the SSO Agreement together is meant to help both parties clarify responsibilities and expectations.
