University Compliance and Risk Services


University Compliance and Risk Services supports the university’s mission and values through Principled Performance which focuses on achieving goals and objectives with integrity. We work with university leadership and partners to systematically identify and assess activities and behaviors which could lead to positive or negative impacts to the university and then help support efforts to manage them to reduce the potential for negative impacts and ensure compliance.


What is Principled Performance

Principled Performance is key to guiding the university to maintain its Christian Commitment while achieving academic excellence. Principled Performance places values first. Baylor’s Christian values are at the heart of the university and are critical to its success. Baylor University has made a commitment to integrating its values across the organization and letting these values lead in achieving its excellence and performance.


Compliance, Risk, and Ethics Framework

The Compliance, Risk, and Ethics program has put a framework in place to allow for constructive conversations and information sharing across the university with the goal of institutionalizing and integrating compliance, risk, and ethics into the university’s decision-making.
