About the Ethics and Compliance Office

The Ethics and Compliance Office (ECO) promotes NIU’s mission through the creation of a campus environment that promotes the highest standards of ethics, integrity and responsibility to enhance the service and programs that NIU provides within the university and public at-large.

To achieve this objective, ECO oversees and manages the policies and procedures that govern the university to ensure compliance with federal and state law, investigates non-compliance in an effective and expedient manner, and collaborates with campus partners through shared governance to provide for a system in which NIU’s values are incorporated into the decision- and policy-making of the university.
