We serve as a strategic partner to Howard University’s leadership in addressing a range of business, operational, compliance, and financial challenges and risks, providing assurance regarding processes and systems, and identifying opportunities to increase efficiency and effectiveness.  We also partner closely with the Assistant Vice President for Risk Management and the Chief Compliance Officer to monitor and mitigate University risks.
