“American universities are highly regulated. They exist in a challenging, rapidly changing legal compliance environment. This environment, which is intended to ensure good governance, also exposes universities, including BYU–Hawaii, to significant compliance risks. BYU–Hawaii is committed to good governance and compliance with the law. We therefore need and require the assistance of everyone in our ‘ohana' to do their part. I invite you to learn of the compliance requirements that are part of your responsibility and integrate them into your work assignments.”

President John S. Tanner

Brigham Young University–Hawaii Compliance


BYU–Hawaii instituted its current compliance program in 2006 to create a cohesive compliance effort on campus. The ultimate goal of a compliance program is to prevent violations of the law, or compliance failures, thus preventing ensuing loss or injury to our students, employees, and patrons, and protecting the university from litigation, fines, and negative publicity. The compliance program expresses BYU–Hawaii's commitment to carry out its educational and research activities in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations and with the highest integrity. It aims to not only develop policies and procedures that help ensure compliance, but to help ensure that these policies are documented, communicated, implemented, and enforced.

As a private university, access to the Compliance website is restricted to users who possess BYU–Hawaii net ID, with the exception of the Federal Disclosures page.
