About the Office

Purpose Statement: To provide oversight and guidance to university-wide ethics, compliance, and enterprise risk management activities, and foster a culture that embeds these disciplines in all university functions and activities.

The University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk Office supports and promotes a culture of ethics, compliance, risk mitigation, and accountability. Our office provides centralized and coordinated oversight of the university’s ethics, compliance, and risk mitigation efforts through the ongoing development of effective policies and procedures, education and training, monitoring, communication, risk assessment, and response to reported issues.

Core functions of the office include:

  • Compliance
  • Ethics and Conflict of Interest
  • Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)

The activities of the office are comprehensive and cover for example, compliance with the Clery Act, NCAA regulations, and regulations covering our federally funded research activities, conflict of interest reporting, promoting integrity and compliance throughout the degree granting process, as well as the responsible conduct of research and evaluation of risks on our campus.

The University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk Office reports administratively to the Office of the President and functionally to the Audit, Operations Review, Compliance, and Ethics Committee of the Board of Trustees. This reporting structure promotes independence and full consideration of compliance, ethics and risk recommendations and action plans.
