Welcome to University Compliance! What is Compliance? Shaw University operates under many laws and regulations- federal, state, local and administrative- that often apply at the institutional level as well as at an individual level based on areas of responsibility. These legal requirements are incorporated into University policies that apply to the University community. Shaw University is strongly committed to ethical conduct and promoting a "culture of compliance." A "culture of compliance" is an environment that supports adherence to the law and to University policies and procedures. To express its commitment to these goals, the University has created the Compliance Office and the Compliance Committee. “Building a Culture of Compliance” is what we are all about. Compliance is everyone’s responsibility!
