Our Mission: We are a dedicated team of legal advisors, counselors, and professional staff committed to serving our clients by facilitating creative, collaborative solutions. We offer high quality advice to assist our clients in their daily decision making and to further the university’s goals and initiatives. We counsel the university community on legal and risk management matters in a collegial, responsive manner. Our passion is service; our standard is excellence.
Who We Serve: The office provides legal and risk management advice on a wide variety of matters to the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, senior officers, other university administrators, and faculty and staff who are acting on behalf of the university. We do not represent or advise faculty, staff or students about personal legal matters. For personal legal advice, employees should consult a private attorney.
