Loyola University Chicago Internal Audit strives to serve as a strategic partner in addressing a range of business, operational, compliance, and financial challenges and risks, provide assurance regarding university processes and systems, and identify opportunities to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
Internal Audit reports administratively to the Senior Vice President for Finance and Chief Financial Officer, and functionally to the Board of Trustees Audit Committee.
