WSU’s compliance program promotes a culture of knowledge of, and compliance with, regulatory and legal requirements. Through the work of the Chief Compliance Officer, Compliance & Civil Rights, the WSU Compliance Committee, and partners throughout the WSU system, the compliance program provides education, advice, and pragmatic solution building for complex compliance issues. Our team is committed to holistically promoting and supporting WSU’s strategic goals and values through thoughtful, equitable, and ethical conduct.
What We Do
Compliance and Civil Rights (CCR) integrates the principles of equal employment, affirmative action, fairness and equality into all academic and employment activities and practices throughout Washington State University (WSU). CCR provides training to students, employees and affiliates on topics such as ADA and accessibility, sex and gender based discrimination, Title IX, Clery Act, discrimination, and Health Sciences.
The office works closely with professionals in the field of law, human resources, and conflict resolution to address individual and university concerns, and act as an information resource for state and federal agencies. CCR reviews and investigates all complaints of discrimination, discriminatory harassment, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct and advises faculty, staff, and students on appropriate management of such issues.
CCR also provides technical assistance to WSU departments to help ensure compliance with state and federal employment opportunity and affirmative action mandates and assesses, develops and implements WSU’s affirmative action plan in compliance with state and federal regulations.
