Internal Auditor

The Internal Auditor is the principal coordinator of the University's auditing activities.  He/she is responsible for monitoring internal control systems, accounting systems, and compliance issues related to the University.  The position reports functionally to the Chair of the Board of Trustees and administratively to the President and General Counsel of the University.

Independence and objectivity are essential to the effectiveness of the functions performed by the Internal Auditor.  In order to meet the standards of the profession, the Internal Auditor must maintain an impartial and unbiased judgment when performing audits. To maintain independence, the Internal Auditor does not set operating or financial policies related to the overall University. Independence is further ensured by the Internal Auditor reporting directly to the Board of Trustees rather than one of the operational units of the campus.
