As of Feb. 1, the University Compliance Office and University Policy Office have been merged into a single administrative unit.
Mike Jenson, who led the University Compliance Office as the chief compliance officer, has been appointed as associate vice president and chief compliance and policy officer. He will oversee the merged office, formally named the University Compliance and Policy Office.
Jenson will report to IU Vice President and General Counsel Anthony Prather. In his new role, Jenson will provide leadership in the university’s policy efforts while continuing his previous responsibilities for compliance matters.
The University Policy Office was created to manage the development and approval of university-wide policies, while the University Compliance Office provided university-wide regulatory compliance support by raising awareness of compliance requirements, providing guidance and addressing compliance concerns. The merger of these offices is intended to provide a consistent and synchronized approach to the rules under which the university community operates and the compliance support activities available to ensure the rules are followed.
“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to serve Indiana University in this new role,” Jenson said. “There is a lot of synergy between the policy and compliance areas, and I’m excited to explore the ways that we can leverage both to make our university processes even more seamless and effective.”
