Oversight and Accountability

Both the President and the Board of Trustees have oversight of the University Ethics and Compliance Program through the Executive Director of University Ethics and Compliance. In addition, the President is accountable to the Board of Trustees for enforcing University rules and regulations, which mandate compliance with Federal, state and local laws and regulations and University policies. The Executive Director of University Ethics and Compliance regularly informs the President and the Board of Trustees (through the Governance, Personnel and Ethics Subcommittee) of ethics and compliance program matters.

The University-Wide Compliance Advisory Committee provides direction and guidance to the University Ethics and Compliance Office and oversees the execution of the compliance function. Meetings are currently held every other month.
