The State University of New York (SUNY) is committed to operating with integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies. SUNY is in the process of establishing a formal, system-wide Compliance Program to coordinate its numerous existing compliance efforts and provide guidance to the campuses on SUNY’s legal, regulatory and ethical responsibilities.

The Compliance Program will be an integral part of SUNY’s Enterprise Risk Management Program, and will provide guidance, resources, best practice, and training materials to campus compliance personnel to assist them in ensuring compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, as well as maintaining an ethical and risk aware culture.

If you have any compliance related questions, please contact:
