Welcome to Compliance Week’s “Top Minds in Compliance” podcast—our conversation series with leaders in the compliance field.


This week, columnist Tom Fox chats with Joseph Agins, institutional compliance officer at Sam Houston State University.

Agins offers his insight on this year’s “Varsity Blues” scandal, in which bribery was used to influence undergraduate admissions decisions at several top colleges and universities. He explains the fallout from the scandal for those in roles similar to his and how it proved the value proposition for enhancements to compliance at higher education institutions.
