The University of Dayton established the Compliance department to oversee and ensure adherence to a variety of compliance requirements and serve as a resource across the University. Compliance reports through ARC, thereby, providing an independent compliance function that reports to the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees. The University is committed to ethical conduct and compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies.

The University operates in an increasingly complex regulatory environment, which requires us to sharpen our focus on accountability and adherence with our legal and ethical responsibilities. Outside regulators and funding sources increasingly require that the university have an imbedded system in place to ensure that the University understands its requirements and works to meet them.  The creation of the Compliance department demonstrates the university's commitment to meeting our legal and regulatory responsibilities, and fostering a culture that promotes ethical conduct. Compliance works with leaders throughout the university to identify and fulfill legal and policy responsibilities.

The goal of the Office of Compliance is to:

  • Foster a University culture that does not tolerate illegal or unethical behavior
  • Create a consistent University-wide approach to compliance
  • Solve problems by improving collaboration and communication
  • Reduce the risks of non-compliance, while increasing the likelihood of early detection and correction
  • Provide a source of best practices and assistance for the entire university community
