Campus Institutional Compliance Committees

Each University of Tennessee campus and institute has an institutional compliance committee responsible for general oversight of its compliance activities. The committee chair is appointed by the chancellor or vice president, and the committee members include campus compliance officers in key areas. The Campus Institutional Compliance Committee reviews the results of the periodic compliance risk assessments performed by the campus compliance officers and ensures that appropriate corrective action plans are developed and implemented where needed. The committee also determines the compliance priorities for the campus or institute and submits recommendations to the chancellor/vice president for corrective actions that need assistance, e.g., additional resources, administrative changes, or increased enforcement.

Listings of regulations and assigned compliance officers for each campus can be found on the Compliance Resource Information page.
