University Compliance Services

Promoting a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff.

University Compliance Case Study

A college with several campuses had struggled to gain buy-in and cooperation across geography and departments within the school. With siloed budgets and concerns about shared oversight, the school remained subject to a lack of visibility that was potentially putting students at risk. Starting with a small group of departments dedicated to collaboration and transparency, Ethico was able to help the college gain buy-in from other departments (and eventually even other campuses) with the attractive promise of volume discounts that helped individual budgets while streamlining administration. An exciting benefit came as cultural and compliance leaders began to discuss common problems and share useful solutions with each other. Departments are now discussing a cross-campus initiative to give students a more proactive voice in addressing anxiety and mental health as the collaborative effort moves their culture past defensive rule checking to a proactive and positive impact.

Protecting students, trustees, and your school’s place as a beacon of intellect

Start with a foundation of Issue Intake & Case Management to accept and compile reports of risks and compliance issues from students, faculty, and staff across hotline, online, in-office, and even text messaging.

Integrate sanction screening and VendorCheck services to make sure your partners don’t bring new risks to your doorstep. Then look for new frontiers of compliance excellence with Awareness Campaigns to build engagement with staff, and #MeToo solutions to address campus sexual harassment. Finally, look to Ethico for staff Training and Specialty Solutions for Inclusivity initiatives and CrisisLine Response coverage.

Your institution is more than a place for teaching, research, and diplomas. It’s a nexus of culture, progress, and lifelong learning. The dynamic importance of educational institutions in an individual’s life, as well as our collective society, demands the highest levels of transparency and accountability. That said, every campus deals with challenges around budget priorities, siloed oversight, and the volatility inherent in a diverse and open environment.

Ethico’s suite of compliance services can help you gain visibility into what the biggest issues are on your campus, and clarity on what to do about it – regardless of whether you’re running a single department or advising the Board of Trustees.
