Institutional Compliance and Ethics

Institutional Compliance and Ethics

Boise State University is committed to conducting its affairs ethically and in compliance with governing laws, regulations and policies. In accordance with the Idaho State Board of Education’s Governing Policies & Procedures Section V.Y., the Office of Institutional Compliance and Ethics is responsible for coordinating compliance oversight, monitoring and reporting at the institutional level. Although Institutional Compliance and Ethics coordinates compliance efforts campus-wide, departments and individuals with compliance responsibilities are subject-matter experts in their respective areas and should continue to be your first contact for specific compliance questions.
