About Us

Northwestern's central Compliance Office helps the University to promote a culture of honest and ethical behavior as well as to identify and manage risk.  The Office’s responsibilities include coordinating, encouraging and monitoring the operational compliance activities that occur throughout the University and advising senior administration and the Board of Trustees on the effectiveness of the University’s compliance efforts.  The Compliance Office works with operational compliance owners across the University to strategically build and improve their compliance programs and ensure they are responsive to evolving regulatory environments. The Compliance Office also manages the University’s EthicsPoint hotline and coordinates the University’s development and review of policies.
