Compliance Advisory Committee

The Compliance Advisory Committee (Advisory Committee) is an information-sharing and awareness-raising advisory group that provides leadership and helps ensure accountability for University compliance. The Advisory Committee accomplishes this by identifying and evaluating institutional risks and communicating recommendations to the Executive Compliance Committee (ECC) to aid in remediation efforts.

Advisory Committee members are campus leaders, appointed by the Compliance Officer, that help carry out University compliance efforts.


To advise and assist in the performance of specific tasks in the compliance program, such as:

  • Developing a risk-based Compliance Plan.
  • Ensuring compliance awareness around campus.
  • Participate in discussions aimed at identifying, prioritizing and remediating institutional risks.
  • Provide input and recommendations on training issues to the ECC.
  • Provide input on policy and operational issues relevant to a successful compliance effort.
  • Aid in the identification of significant compliance risks and cross-jurisdictional issues where exposures may not have been addressed.
  • Evaluate the risks associated with emerging compliance issues and bring them to the Advisory Committee to ensure accountability has been established.
  • Participate in the evaluation of Risk Management Plans for all high-risk areas.
  • Evaluating reports from University officials responsible for high-risk areas.
