UofL names Rhonda Bishop for new audit, compliance role


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville today announced that Rhonda Bishop will be the university’s new vice president for enterprise risk management, audit and compliance effective April 16.

    The university’s Board of Trustees approved her appointment in February.

    Bishop is currently University of Central Florida’s chief compliance and ethics officer and previously held senior-level compliance and research administration positions at Virginia Commonwealth University. At both of those institutions she built the compliance and ethics programs from the ground up. She has been recognized nationally for her system-wide work in Florida.

    Her career in academics spans more than 28 years, including 23 years focused on medical research and compliance.

    “Rhonda is a seasoned professional committed to transparency and the adoption of best practices,” said Interim President Greg Postel. “She has truly been a trailblazer in the areas of compliance and ethics.”

    Bishop’s new position was created in 2017 when the university restructured an associate vice president for audit and institutional compliance position.

    “The restructuring of this position demonstrates the university’s commitment to a culture based on integrity, transparency and compliance,” said Bishop. “I really look forward to being part of the UofL community and working together to establish the university as a model for ethics and compliance in higher education.”

    Bishop earned an MBA and bachelors from Virginia Commonwealth University and is a Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional. She is founding chair of the Florida State University System Compliance and Ethics Consortium.
