  • Identify and prioritize risks (positive and negative) to the organization and its mission and share risk-related data and information with the organization to inform tactical and strategic planning (ERM);
  • Detect violations of law, regulation, and policy, and ensure the organization takes steps to correct such violations and implements controls reasonably designed to prevent recurring violations on a sustained basis (Compliance & Ethics, and Privacy);
  • Periodically audit and test controls and processes to measure and report on sustained adherence to prescribed rules (Internal Audit).
  • Promote the safety and well-being of students, Patients, faculty, staff, guests, and other constituents throughout the enterprise and its facilities (EH&S).”
