Higher education is one of the most regulated industries in the nation. With regulations continuously increasing and being revised, the University faces significant financial burden and challenges in meeting both academic objectives and compliance requirements with limited competing resources.
These challenges necessitate a University wide compliance program that promotes an efficient, responsive, and risk based approach to reducing the complexities of managing the myriad of regulations thereby allowing Western to focus its resources on its Strategic Plan. Despite any challenge, Western is committed to compliance while upholding it’s value of integrity, responsibility and accountability among its’ workforce and students.
Western is developing a Compliance Program Plan that will outline:
- Program Goals
- Key Program Elements
- Roles and Responsibilities
Every University employee has some level of responsibility for compliance. The Compliance Toolkits web page provides information for employees, compliance owners and co-owners to assist them in supporting the University Compliance Program.
