Autonomy and Resources

The Executive Director of Ethics and Compliance reports directly to University President, with a dotted line to the Governance, Personnel and Ethics Committee of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees.  The Executive Director is also the liaison to the Office of Executive Inspector General for the Agencies of the Illinois Governor.

The University's Compliance Program began in 2014. The Compliance Office consists of the Executive Director of University Ethics and Compliance and the Associate Director of University Compliance, as well as two Senior Coordinators of Compliance. There are many more compliance professionals distributed throughout the three universities and efforts are made to coordinate with these individuals.
