We support the mission of the university by providing objective and independent assurance, consulting and investigative services to reduce risks and improve operations.

About Us

The CAE has a dual-reporting relationship. The CAE reports to the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and the President administratively, while reporting to the Board of Trustees through the Committee on Audit and Compliance functionally.
