What We Do ... and Who We Are

What does compliance mean?

"Compliance" refers to adherence to, or the following of, laws, rules, policies, and any other requirements that apply to your job duties. You are not responsible for knowing all the laws and policies that apply to Texas Southern University; however, you are responsible for those that relate to your own immediate job duties.

What does the Office of Institutional Compliance do?

Texas Southern University is a very complex organization with hundreds of employees and many departments. The Office of Institutional Compliance works with the various University departments to appropriately address compliance and ethics issues and concerns. Additionally, the Office of Institutional Compliance coordinates compliance training designed to familiarize faculty and staff with laws governing their conduct as state employees and officers.
