Gray Teal Purple CirclesServing on a board of trustees’ audit committee is both rewarding and challenging. As an audit committee member, you are a guardian of your institution’s most precious asset — its reputation. Your primary role is to help the board maintain the institution’s overall integrity, financial credibility and long-term viability.

To expand your understanding of an audit committee’s purposes and functions, and your duties as a committee member, consult our Higher Education Audit Committee Guidebook. Within its pages you’ll find guidance on accountability and independence, roles and duties, working within the institution and with external auditors, and monitoring responsibilities. You can also learn more about specific best practices; visit “Audit committee work within the higher education institution.”

As you read, you may discover that detailed information in certain areas would be helpful. Contact us; our Not-for-Profit and Higher Education professionals are committed to helping address challenges for your audit committee and your institution.

Trustees of higher education boards can find information and download our Higher Education Board Guidebook.
