Welcome to the Compliance Matrix

What Is a Compliance Matrix?

The University’s Compliance Matrix is a resource to help Drexel community members locate the appropriate individual to contact with questions or concerns about specific areas or specialties.

Compliance Is a Shared Responsibility

Each member of the University community has a responsibility to conduct themselves ethically and in compliance with the law. There are certain individuals throughout the University who are responsible for maintaining compliance with specific laws and regulations. Drexel's Compliance Matrix promotes shared accountability for compliance and an institutional culture of honesty and integrity.

Remember: It’s Okay to Ask

The Drexel Compliance Matrix is not intended to replace the Office of Compliance, Privacy & Internal Audit. We will always be here to address your questions and concerns. You can contact us at compliance@drexel.edu.
