  • We coordinate the enterprise risk management program and assist in identifying critical risks to the University; track and monitor identified risks; and provide support in assessing and mitigating risks.
  • We assist management in the development of policies, procedures and guidelines intended to facilitate compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
  • We conduct training and education programs to keep personnel apprised of policies and procedures.
  • We perform ongoing monitoring and surveillance function by reviewing business activities, business transactions, and communications.
  • We administer information between campuses and departments as well as coordinate with other control departments such as Risk Management, Audit and Advisory Services, and General Counsel.
  • We conduct compliance investigations into possible violations of relevant laws, regulations, and University policies.
  • We promote a culture of Ethics and Compliance.
