Advisory Committee

A part of the design of the institutional compliance and ethics program for Villanova University is the existence of the University Compliance and Ethics Program Advisory Committee (UCEPAC) that serves to provide guidance and oversight to the program itself. Composed of diverse representation, the members of this Committee lend their institutional knowledge, subject matter expertise, and dedicated efforts to the development of a program, tailored to meet the university’s specific needs, which is proactive in its oversight of existing and emerging compliance risks. 

The UCEPAC Charter describes in greater detail the mission and goals of the Committee.
