Welcome to the Office of Compliance and Ethics
The mission of Florida Atlantic University’s compliance and ethics office is to assist the university in achieving its financial, operational and strategic goals (as set forth in FAU’s Strategic Plan for the Race to Excellence, 2015-2025) while promoting compliance with all institutional policies as well as federal and state laws and regulations.
The office provides oversight of compliance-related activities including the development of an effective university-wide compliance and ethics program to prevent, detect, monitor, and respond to areas of non-compliance as well as promote a culture of ethics, compliance, risk mitigation, and accountability.
FAU’s Compliance and Ethics Program creates a structural foundation to prevent and detect violations of law and assist FAU in encouraging ethical conduct and full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The compliance and ethics program is led by FAU’s chief compliance and ethics officer and involves oversight from the board of trustees as well as the president.
The program also proactively identifies and assesses risk to the university and mitigate those risks through appropriate controls, governance processes as well as developing or implementing training and awareness for the university community.
