Compliance at UNC

The Compliance Program provides centralized monitoring and substantive support to facilitate legal and ethical conduct in University activities and operations.


As a global, public research university, with a Division I athletics program, Carolina is subject to a consistently evolving, complex regulatory environment. External sponsors and oversight bodies increasingly require that the University has a systemized process to ensuring the University, and its members, understand internal and external requirements and are committed to meet them. The creation of the Division of Institutional Integrity and Risk Management, and the Central Compliance function within, demonstrates the University’s commitment to compliance with legal and regulatory responsibilities, and to fostering a culture of integrity and ethical conduct.


The Central Compliance Office:

  • Fosters a University culture of integrity and encourages University community members to educate themselves on applicable rules and regulations the prevent adverse consequences to the university from noncompliant conduct.
  • Encourages collaboration and communication to solve pan-university problems.
  • Creates efficiencies in operations by implementing creative solutions to new regulatory requirements.
  • Provides resources and assistance for the entire University community.
