The Executive Director of Ethics and Compliance, along with the Associate Director of University Compliance and Senior Coordinator of Compliance, serve to increase awareness and monitoring of compliance initiatives university-wide.  Compliance is a complex area within the University of Illinois system that demands intense attention, which is why the University Ethics Office expanded in 2014 to include a compliance arm.  Employees involved with compliance in their units will work with the University Ethics and Compliance Office to further enhance the ethical culture and compliance environment, establishing the University of Illinois as a benchmark for compliance efforts amongst its peers.
