UNM Compliance Office - Main Campus

Welcome to the homepage of the University of New Mexico Main Campus Compliance Office.

The Compliance Office collaborates with the UNM community and senior leadership to coordinate and guide compliance efforts across the campus. The Compliance Office is complemented by an institutional compliance committee of administrative partners with responsibility and expertise in the major compliance areas, including athletics, human resources, research, student affairs, facilities, and finance.

Our mission is to ensure institutional compliance with applicable laws and regulations; to promote ethical behavior and research integrity; and to provide the tools, guidance, and oversight needed to adhere to all necessary regulatory requirements.

Our goal is to enhance compliance awareness across the University community, and support the management of compliance obligations from a university-wide perspective. The program is administered by the Chief Compliance Officer, who reports functionally to the Board of Regents and administratively to the President.
