University Compliance


The University Compliance Office provides resources to navigate Cornell's complex regulatory and ethical responsibilities and to help stakeholders determine the right course of action when acting on behalf of the university. Our office is focused on upholding Cornell's core values, facilitating solutions, enhancing a culture of compliance and ethics, and balancing compliance with mission-driven activities. The office was established in January 2020 at the request of President Martha E. Pollack. The University Compliance Office is administered by the Chief Compliance Officer, who reports to the Executive Vice President and the Audit, Risk, and Compliance Committee of the university's Board of Trustees.

University Compliance Office staff are dedicated to supporting Cornell's mission of learning, discovery, and engagement. Visit our office mission statement to learn more.
