Compliance: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility

The Compliance Program, under the direction of Margaret Denton, the Chief Compliance Officer and with the support of the compliance team of 8 Compliance Leads provides resources to help faculty, staff and students do the right thing and ensure Pacific is a safe, secure and ethical place to work and learn. The Compliance team is a "one-stop shop" of university compliance unit leads who represent areas of university business such as human resources, finance, academic support and student affairs, and are available to answer questions and provide guidance in their respective areas.

The Compliance Program introduced the Compliance Helpline, hosted by a third-party provider, EthicsPoint, to provide an easy method for members of the university community to request guidance for compliance questions and concerns, and to report compliance issues. An important feature of the Compliance Helpline is that all requests and reports either by phone or online can be made on a confidential, anonymous basis, at the choice of the Helpline user.

Denton and the compliance leads are available to make presentations to your department or unit. To schedule a presentation, please contact Rita Peterson, Compliance Program Coordinator, at or 209.932.3009.
