The Office of Compliance and Integrity supports compliance efforts at UW System. Our mission is to provide support and services to UW System universities in identifying and fulfilling compliance obligations from federal law, state law, and Board of Regents policies. We do this by promoting a culture that moves beyond regulatory compliance to one that embraces ethics and integrity across UW System.

The areas of focus include, but are not limited to:  Title IX Compliance, Clery Act Compliance, Protection of Minors, Public Records, and Records Management, Ethics and Conflicts of Interest, and State Authorization of Distance Education and Investigative Services.

The Office of Compliance and Integrity combined with the Office of Risk Management, forming the new Office of Compliance and Risk Management (OCRM). This integrates compliance and risk priorities into one cohesive and collaborative structure at the System level. The OCRM provides a centralized approach to developing and implementing an effective and impactful risk management and compliance structure as well as promoting and maintaining a culture of ethics and integrity. Learn more about the OCRM, its Core Values, and alignment with the Strategic Plan.
