New Mexico State University (NMSU) operates within complex regulatory environments that are
constantly changing. The number of laws, rules and regulations increased focus on regulatory and
statutory compliance at colleges and universities by federal and state agencies, and consequences of
noncompliance make it increasingly important and necessary for NMSU to fully understand the scope
of the compliance activities across the institution. Historically, compliance oversight has not been
centralized or performed through a coordinated effort. No one individual, department, or committee is
responsible for ensuring compliance with laws and regulations. This lack of coordination increases the
risk of noncompliance going undetected and limits the likelihood that compliance concerns will be
appropriately communicated. This supports the need for a central compliance oversight function at the NMSU.
The purpose of this committee is to be responsible for assuring compliance with laws and regulations that impact
functional areas and provides guidance relative to regulatory compliance matters, along with ensuring compliance
with NMSU’s regulatory requirements.
