Our Mission 

Internal Audit is committed to performing value-added, risk-based audits and consultations, designed to independently review and evaluate the financial, information technology, and operational controls throughout the University. We promote effective stewardship of University assets and resources, respect all people, and support and uphold the highest level of integrity. 

Statement of Authority

Under the direct auspices of the Board of Trustees, the Office of Internal Audit has full, free, and unrestricted access to all University activities, records, property, and personnel. 

Individually, and collectively, Internal Audit staff members are responsible to the Senior Vice President for Finance and Business/Treasurer for conducting themselves properly under that broad authority at all times. 

The Board of Trustees has authorized the Internal Audit Director to have direct access to the President of the University and the Board of Trustees. 


Partnering with the University community to ensure Penn State remains a premier teaching, research and service University.
