Office of Compliance
The Office of Compliance promotes ethical conduct and compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies at UW-Madison. We believe compliance is a shared responsibility, with every member of the university community understanding those responsibilities and being accountable for their actions.
The Office of Compliance provides program oversight for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA Privacy), Title IX of the Education Amendments, Wisconsin Public Records Law, and for providing fair and impartial employment and education discrimination complaint investigations (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act). The Office collaborates with campus partners to mitigate compliance risk and promote ethical conduct throughout the university community.
We envision a campus community in which every member adheres to ethical principles and compliance “right-doing” to advance the mission of the institution and its tradition of excellence.
