The Office of Internal Audit performs investigations of suspected misconduct violations. Most whistleblower complaints and/or complaints of employee misuse and abuse have, at their core, implications of noncompliance with state ethics laws.
In order to protect its employees and ensure strong internal controls and overall compliance, the University promotes ethics training to all levels of employment. New employees are provided an introduction to the law and open enrollment sessions discussing provisions of the law are held throughout the year.
The University Ethics Compliance Advisor is available at any time to provide guidance on interpretation and ensuring employees act within the constraints of the law in carrying out the duties of their respective positions. The Ethics Compliance Advisor is located in Compliance and Civil Rights.
