Compliance Training » UFHR Learn & Grow

Compliance Training

The University of Florida is committed to pursuing its academic mission in compliance with established federal, state and local rules, regulations, policies and procedures. By ensuring compliance, not only does our institution become a safer, more hospitable place to work and learn, but we also lower the risk of being financially penalized, including loss of funding for important research opportunities.

Many of the university’s compliance efforts have a required training component. Categories of compliance training include training for IT employees with access to sensitive data, employee training related to regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency, Social Security number and identity theft training, as well as other research compliance training. Various UF departments and training providers are responsible for conducting compliance training based on their areas of responsibility.

UF Training & Organizational Development partners with other training providers and departments in order to centralize information and record-keeping related to compliance training efforts.
