BYU Assistant to the President and General Counsel Steve Sandberg announced this week the appointment of Lisa Bohman as BYU’s new chief integrity and compliance officer. She will also serve as the director of the Integrity and Compliance Office at BYU.
“Lisa is well prepared to lead the Integrity and Compliance Office,” Sandberg said. “Lisa has been the interim director and has also advised the office on a wide range of legal issues. Before coming to BYU, she led the legal team at the Utah Transit Authority. She has a steady, calm, and pragmatic approach to solving problems and working with people. I look forward to working closely with Lisa as she guides BYU’s compliance program.”
Bohman will assume her new role on August 2. She replaces Sarah Campbell, who was the first full-time compliance officer at BYU.
“Sarah created BYU’s Integrity and Compliance Office and pioneered the role of chief integrity and compliance officer,” Sandberg said. “We all — especially the compliance coordinators and the members of the Integrity and Compliance Office — are grateful for Sarah’s vision and for the graceful and dedicated way she promoted BYU’s compliance efforts. We will miss Sarah and wish her all the best.”
The goal of the office is to help ensure that the university complies with applicable laws and standards and to help prevent illegal or unethical behavior that would compromise BYU’s institutional integrity. The office will be a resource for compliance information, a partner in campus-wide communication and training efforts, a clearinghouse for policy development and a support for university leaders and those responsible for daily compliance activities.
Bohman spent 10 years with the Utah Transit Authority, where she worked as its managing attorney, before joining BYU’s Office of the General Counsel in 2019. She also worked as an associate attorney at the law firm of Van Cott, Bagley, Cornwall & McCarthy. She currently serves as the co-chair of the compliance affinity group for the National Association of Women Lawyers.
She earned two degrees from BYU: a Juris Doctor from the J. Reuben Clark Law School and a Bachelor of Arts in history. She also completed a Master of Public Administration from the University of Utah.
