Why Compliance Matters to Me:
College life presents many choices and challenges. It is your responsibility to be aware of how your choices and actions may affect yourself and others around you. Compliance is a willingness to follow a prescribed course of action, such as laws and regulations. Compliance is not about policing people’s behavior; it is about constantly striving to understand our many and varied obligations and follow them.
