Advancing Our Mission, Maintaining High Standards

As a top public research institution with highly ranked academic programs and a world-class health system, having a strong foundation of ethics, integrity and compliance allows us to excel as leaders and best.

Promoting and supporting compliance isn’t about policing people’s behavior, it’s about understanding which regulations, laws and policies apply to our activities and making sure we follow them. It’s about doing the “right thing” to advance the University of Michigan’s mission and maintain high standards.

Understanding Our Roles & Responsibilities

Compliance is the responsibility of every U-M employee. Each of us needs to make sure that our actions and U-M’s activities comply with the law, applicable regulatory requirements and university policy. Legal and compliance experts, managers and university leadership are here to help. 

This website was created to raise awareness about the importance of compliance, direct the U-M community to the most relevant Topics & Contacts resources and Training and provide useful information about the best ways to Report a Concern.
