Academic excellence cannot be achieved without administrative excellence.

Internal Auditing:

  • Is independent
  • Provides objective assurance
  • Is a consulting activity

We are designed to:

  • Add value
  • Improve the University's operations

Internal Audit exists to support Xavier University's Mission by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of:

  • Risk management
  • Controls
  • Governance
  • Compliance oversight

Our approach is collaborative and forward thinking. We are a resource, not a threat. We are accountable to the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees and report administratively to the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
