About Audit, Risk and Compliance (ARC)

In 2017, the University of Dayton established the Department of Audit, Risk and Compliance (ARC) to oversee the compliance, internal controls, and risk management efforts across the University. ARC includes the Offices of Compliance, Internal Audit, Environmental Health & Safety, Risk Management & Insurance and the overall Enterprise Risk Management program.  We will serve the University Community and affiliated entities as a highly valued strategic partner and resource; providing innovative, high quality service, and cost efficient processes for appropriately balancing risk and opportunity. 

The Assistant Vice President (AVP)/ Chief Risk Officer (CRO) of ARC reports functionally to the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees and administratively to the Vice President of Finance and Administration to provide for an independent department.  The AVP/ CRO will report activities at the University regularly to the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees. The University is committed to ethical conduct and compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies. We aspire to be a cost-effective, efficient, impactful, and transparent operation aligned with the University’s mission.
