The Syracuse University Compliance Program (SUCP) serves as the source of coordination, oversight, and support for university-wide compliance. It is structured recognizing that building and maintaining a global culture of compliance, ethics and integrity are shared responsibilities and require individual commitment from all employees, faculty, trustees, staff, students and vendors, the “Community Members.” The culture of “shared responsibility” for compliance is woven into the fabric of our organizational culture. It functions to build a collaborative community of compliance throughout the University in accordance with the Code of Ethical Conduct. With the integrated engagement of subject matter specific compliance partners, the Compliance Program ensures that the University is in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations that impact its operations. .
In furtherance of the University’s mission to assure compliance, the Compliance Program is focused on the key program structural components as set forth in the U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations and the U.S. Department of Justice. The structure of the program concentrates on the following component areas: (1) Standards, Policies and Procedures; (2) Compliance Program Administration; (3) Screening and Evaluation of Employees, Vendors and Agents; (4) Communication, Education & Training; (5) Monitoring, Auditing and Internal Reporting Systems; (6) Discipline for Non-Compliance; and (7) Investigation Oversight and Remedial Measures.
As the University operates in an increasingly innovative complex environment with numerous laws and regulations that govern our activities as an institution and many agencies monitoring our activities. The penalties for violating laws and regulations, even when they involve a good faith effort, are often severe. For this reason, the Compliance Program actively collaborates with its compliance partners, including but not limited to Athletics; Business, Finance and Accounting; Campus Planning and Facilities; Development; Environmental Health and Safety; Information Technology; Internal Audit; Labor and Employment; Public Safety; Research; Risk Management; Student Affairs; and other key essential functions to maintain compliance throughout the University community.
SUCP is committed to an environment where transparency, collaboration, accountability, and integrity are the expectation, not the exception. Community Members should feel empowered to raise compliance concerns as well as seek guidance on how to prevent, detect and correct non-compliance.

The Office of Athletic Compliance (OAC) reports directly to the Office of University Counsel and functions within the scope of the University’s compliance program to coordinate, monitor, and verify compliance with all NCAA requirements and to educate the various constituencies of the University and the athletics community regarding NCAA regulations.
The OAC directs the University's compliance efforts and acts as a resource center concerning NCAA regulations and compliance issues. The primary functions of the OAC are to oversee and verify the accurate and timely completion of NCAA-required procedures. In addition, the OAC provides educational programming and interpretive support to ensure that all individuals involved with the athletics program fully understand the University's compliance expectations. It is the responsibility of the OAC to ensure that the demands of the NCAA's and the University's compliance efforts and expectations are properly supported.
