Office of Institutional Compliance, Umbrella

We Have a New Program!

As of October 2019, we have added “Ethics” to our mission. The ethics program will promote and support a culture that encourages all members of the University community to act ethically; that is, in a manner consistent with our values. See more information on our Ethics page.

The Office of Institutional Compliance supports the University and its members to consistently comply with all laws, rules, regulations, and related University policies that govern the University and to enhance cultural awareness of the importance of compliance and related integrity to the University’s mission.


Focuses on efforts that promote a University culture that encourages ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance.
Addresses individual and institutional conflicts of interest that are created when University activities may be compromised by external interests.
Provides administrative policies and associated documents that align operations, set behavioral expectations across the University system, mitigate institutional risk, and communicate policy roles and responsibilities.
Provides access to and maintains delegations and sub-delegations of authority for contracts and agreements that bind the University to a legally enforceable obligation (transactional authorities).
