Department Mission

UTC’s Audit and Compliance helps the university achieve its mission by providing objective and independent evaluations to reduce risk and improve operations. The office provides the campus and system administration with appraisals of control processes, risk management, and governance as a service to the UT Board of Trustees and all levels of management. These appraisals help ensure that the university’s assets are protected, departments are operating efficiently and effectively, and UT is complying with applicable policies, laws, and regulations.
