University of Michigan — Ethics, Integrity, and Compliance Officer

From the time of its founding in 1817, the University of Michigan has developed into a national model of a complex, diverse, and comprehensive institution of higher learning that supports excellence in research; provides outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and professional education; and demonstrates a commitment to public service and engagement. It is one of only two institutions consistently ranked among the nation’s top ten public universities, and many of its departments and professional schools are ranked among the top ten in the country. The University has an annual budget of over $10.7 billion and an endowment of $17 billion, among the largest in the nation. The Ann Arbor campus is 35 miles southwest of Detroit, with regional campuses located in the cities of Dearborn and Flint.

Reporting to the President, the University’s inaugural Ethics, Integrity, and Compliance Officer (EICO) will serve as a champion across all three campuses and the academic medical center for ethics, integrity, and compliance (EIC). The EICO assists units in coordinating EIC activities and responds to compliance guidance questions; advises the President, Executive Officer team, and Board of Regents on EIC issues; and coordinates with key stakeholders to develop and track training across the entire enterprise, including developing priorities, so faculty and staff are knowledgeable of institutional policies and pertinent federal and state standards. The EICO will develop an ongoing campaign to heighten awareness of the university’s various compliance programs; chair the Ethics, Integrity, and Compliance Committee; and work with EIC officials to support their work and gain further insights on issues across the entire enterprise. 

A bachelor’s degree and at least ten years of compliance or related experience are required. An advanced degree and significant experience in higher education, particularly at public research institutions with an academic medical center and large collegiate sports program, are preferred. The ideal candidate will possess a deep understanding of challenges and opportunities for ethics, integrity, and compliance at large, complex institutions; demonstrated success in building relationships and generating trust with key stakeholders; and a demonstrated ability to manage and prioritize multiple, complex, time-sensitive efforts simultaneously with a high degree of organization and effectiveness.
