Welcome to the Office of University ComplianceOffice of Compliance

Oregon State University is committed to teaching, research, outreach, and engagement, and is actively pursuing the vision of becoming one of the top 10 land grant universities in the nation.

In support of that vision, the Office of University Compliance (OUC) was created to coordinate the many compliance activities the university undertakes as it operates in a highly regulated environment that grows more complex every year.

To this end, the OUC undertakes activities designed to promote and maintain the university's culture of respect and honesty, and build ethics consciousness into the daily activities of its faculty and staff while maintaining compliance with the law. We provide support to the university in six primary areas - risk assessment, policy management, training and general education, operational support, effort coordination, and monitoring of program effectiveness.

The OUC reports to the Compliance Executive Committee, which provides oversight and guidance for our activities.

Our office continuously strives to enhance our programs and services to better meet the needs of our students, faculty, and staff.  We welcome your suggestions to help us in these efforts.
