William & Mary faculty members are subject to several compliance policies. Compliance & Equity is the hub of information on how faculty should ensure a commitment to a culture of compliance and ethics at William & Mary. Faculty also have responsibilities for conducting ethical research and must comply with protocols when working with human subjects, animal research, biosafety, and the responsible conduct of research. 

Other offices on campus have compliance oversight for specific federal and state regulations and university policy. For example, specific areas covering Immigration and visa compliance, NCAA compliance, and campus partner information are found under Compliance Collaboration.
