You are a Leader of the University…
Executive Officers, Associate Vice Chancellors, Associate Provosts, Deans, Associate Deans, and Department Heads all play a critical role in fostering a Culture of Compliance at NC State. Thus, University Leaders must demonstrate a commitment and willingness to let values drive strategic decision-making and expect others to do the same. This means working with Compliance Owners and Partners in maintaining open lines of communication and supporting the University’s compliance efforts — both university-wide and within individual units and departments. You are always encouraged to enlist help from resources such as the University Compliance & Integrity Manager, the Office of General Counsel, an HR representative, or other services.
