These expectations have their foundation in requirements established by the State of Florida’s Board of Governors as well as the University of Florida’s Board of Trustees. The UF Compliance Program is a point of coordination for all compliance activities. Elizabeth Ruszczyk serves as UF’s Chief Compliance Officer and oversees the program.
