We understand that Compliance is everyone’s job and we are all expected to be knowledgeable and act in a manner which reflects our core values. We possess a steadfast dedication to professional and personal integrity and we can be counted upon to “do the right thing.”

In 2010, the Mocs partnered with ACS Athletics to further strengthen their Compliance operations. As a leading provider of athletic management software and services, ACS delivers innovative solutions to athletic organizations that are proven to reduce costs and liabilities while improving quality and productivity. This partnership was a big investment on a part of UTC, but was necessary to implement check and balances in the Compliance system. ACS Athletics flagship product, ACS InControl™, centralizes document and information management in one system for the key operational areas that drive the Student-Athlete Lifecycle™, allowing stakeholders across an organization to see a holistic view of student-athlete, recruiting, business and compliance-related information.
